PHASE I ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENTS (ESA's)
AEI provides Phase I ESA's in accordance with ASTM E 1527-21 and EPA All Approriate Inquires, 40 CFR Part 312.
Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process:
Step One - Historical Land Use Review: Includes review of county deed records and aerial photos from previous decades.
Step Two - Environmental Records Review: Research and review public records published by federal, state, tribal and local agencies, including a one mile radius search, to determine sources of existing and potential environmental impacts at the subject property and adjacent properties. Investigation of the property's geological and hydrological features. Current owner interview.
Step Three - Site Visit: Perform a site inspection consisting of a visual survey of the subject property for the prescence of hazardous material including, but not limited to, chemical storage, hazardous material disposal, distressed vegetation, above ground storage tanks, electrical transformers and current operations on the property.
Step Four - Final Report: The results of the Phase I ESA are compiled in a report that includes findings and recommendations.
If the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment reveals potential environmental hazards on the property AEI would recommend a Phase II ESA be performed to determine the the type and extent of the environmental hazards.
