The Phase II ESA is a subsurface investigation designed to determine whether conditions identified during a Phase I ESA have physical impacted the environmental quality of a property. ASTM adopted a Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase II Process in 2011 (ASTM E1903-11). New York State Department of Environmental Conserviation’s technical regulations (NYSDEC DER-10, 6 NYCRR 375, NYSDOH VI Guidelines) provide formal procedures for conducting Phase II ESAs for regulatory approval. New York City Office of Environmental Remediation (NYCOER) has specific protocols for performing Phase II ESAs that consider the location, size, and historical and planned uses of a property.
Whether there is a need to know the integrity of an underground storage tank or the quality of soil, soil vapor or groundwater, ACT has the personnel and equipment to “get the job done” as fast and inexpensively as possible. This professional quality allows ACT to efficiently identify indications of potentially harmful and expensive environmental impacts. That’s why our Phase II ESAs are utilized by property owners, developers, financial institutions and regulatory agencies as valid proof of a property’s environmental condition and value.
