Phase I Environmental Site Assessments

The primary purpose of an ESA is to identify, in the legal sense, "recognized past and present environmental conditions" for a site and its surrounding properties.

A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is defined by the American Society for Testing and Materials as:

... the process by which a person or entity seeks to determine if a particular parcel of real property (including improvements) is subject to recognized environmental conditions [where recognized environmental conditions means] the presence or likely presence of any hazardous substances or petroleum products on a property under conditions that indicate an existing release, a past release, or a material threat of a release of any hazardous substances or petroleum products into structures on the property or into the ground, groundwater, or surface water of the property. Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process at 5, Designation: ASTM E 1527-00, American Society of Testing and Materials (2000).

Unless otherwise requested, we conduct each Phase I ESA in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standard 1527-00 and ASTM 1528-00. The assessment identifies and assesses the potential environmental risk associated with a given site. We can provide a sample Phase I ESA Report, under separate cover, to review our standard report quality. The format is based on the ASTM current standards.

PanTerra will conduct a Phase I ESA by performing:
