Environmental Site Assessments Services
The Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (Phase I ESA) process is intended 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 practices that constitute all appropriate inquiry into the previous ownership and uses of the property consistent with good commercial or customary practice. Geo-Source, Inc. utilizes the ASTM Standard Practice E 1527-05, enacted into law and codified as 40 CFR 312.
Geo-Source, Inc. has completed hundreds of Phase I Environmental Site Assessments on commercial, industrial, agricultural and undeveloped properties throughout the United States. Our environmental professionals include Registered Environmental Managers and experienced real estate professionals as well as other scientists experienced in Phase I ESA's. Geo-Source, Inc. also holds the certification necessary to perform Phase I ESA's in the State of Arkansas.
When necessitated by evidence of recognized environmental conditions and the desires of our client, Geo-Source, Inc. is fully capable of coordinating and conducting Phase II ESA's which may involve sampling and analysis of waste media, soil, surface water and groundwater. Our experience in these levels of investigation range from underground storage tank incidents to releases of hazardous substances from manufacturing operations. It is important to realize that the Phase II ESA process may involve more than one iteration of sampling and analysis to fully characterize the vertical and horizontal extent of a release of hazardous substances or petroleum products. Throughout the course of this process Geo-Source, Inc. will maintain protocol and coordination with the regulatory agency(s) as necessary to bring the assessment and investigation to closure as quickly as possible in the most cost-effective method. And as always, our reputation for customer service and responsiveness will ensure the client is well informed throughout the entirety of the investigation.
