Why Are Phase 1 ESA's Important?

Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments are crucial for businesses and property owners seeking to understand potential environmental risks before property acquisition or development. These assessments aim to identify any existing or potential contamination, hazardous substances, or other environmental concerns. The discovery of contamination on a property can lead to environmental and human health risks that may uprise if not assessed and treated before closing any transaction on the land. All of our Phase I (ESA) 's are performed in accordance with the ASTM E1527 - 13 Standard Practice for ESA’s: Phase One Environmental Site Assessment Process. To get a deeper understanding of what all goes into a phase 1, we've completed a phase 1 esa checklist that explains it all in further datail.
