PHASE I & II ESA
This service investigates for possible contamination on a property. All of our Phase I Environmental Site Assessment reports are warranted to meet ASTM E1527-13 standards. This product is intended to permit a user to satisfy one of the requirements to qualify for the innocent landowner, contiguous property owner, or bona fide prospective purchaser limitations on CERCLA liability that is, the practice that constitutes “all appropriate inquiry into the previous ownership and uses of the property consistent with good commercial or customary practice” as defined at 42 USC §9601 (35)(B).
Controlled substances are not included within the scope of this standard. Phase I Environmental Site Assessments are often required by lenders before they will issue a loan for a commercial property that may have soil or water contamination from previous property owners.
Our Phase II services use only EPA certified laboratories to assess samples. Our professional geologist has over 19 years of experience developing monitoring plans and creating innovative solutions to handle contamination. SWCA is committed to bringing the most effective solutions to your projects.
Sometimes the solution is simple, and sometimes it is innovative, but the solution is always the one that achieves the greatest benefit for our clients and the environment. We know how important it is to have a clear understanding of possible contamination of a site.
