ASTM Phase I Environmental Site Assessment

The staff at Service Environmental Engineering has many years experience performing ASTM Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs). These assesments are an integral first step in exercising due diligence. The obligation of property ownership creates liability , if there is a threat of environmental impact and the associated clean-up. Buyers, financiers, developers, operators, tenants, and owners have become increasingly concerned about the environmental status of their real estate. An ASTM Phase I ESA provides research to determine the potential for environmental risks associated with a property.

The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) has been interpreted to require lenders, lessors, and buyers to be responsible for hazardous substance remediation. Performing an ASTM Phase I Environmental Site Assessment may create an 'Innocent Landowner Defense', and protect buyers and lenders from hidden contamination, while allowing for a more accurate valuation of the property.

The Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1998 requires ASTM Phase I Environmental Site Assessments be completed by purchasers of certain commercial properties. Purchasers of residential properties may be exempt from this specific standard, but it is strongly recommended to have an ASTM Phase I Assessment completed prior to beginning new residential developments, or before purchasing housing adjacent to a commercial property or environmentally questionable land or business.

Service Environmental Engineering, Inc. provides an ASTM Phase I Environmental Site Assessments to determine the risks associated with a property. Our Phase I ESA includes the following:
