Environmental Site Assessment Phase I

Environmental site assessment Phase I (ESA Phase I) aims to identify potential contamination as a result of current and past usage of the site and its environment, derived from the handling, manufacture, storage or distribution of hazardous materials and waste.

Phase I (Background and current use of the site):

  • Acknowledgment of current and past use of the site
  • Review of aerial photographs
  • Discussion with appropriate environmental control agencies
  • Review of state and federal listings of known sites where hazardous materials are stored
  • Visual inspection of the site and adjoining plots
  • Compilation and analysis of all the data collected
  • Report preparation

Some of the benefits of investing in an ESA Phase I are:

  • Defining and supporting strategy for a possible phase II environmental assessment
  • Helping maintain the real value of a property
  • Facilitating decision making in real estate operations management
  • Providing the first indication of compliance with environmental legislation and the civil liability law
  • Requirement for credit management and insurance
