Phase 1 ESA

CSR Engineering has completed many Phase I Environmental Site Assessment for multiple commercial properties located throughout middle Tennesse.   One representative sample property assessed consisted of approximately 0.75 acres of developed, trapezoid shaped, land located south of Highway 76 in White House, Tennessee. The Site contained a two-story slab-on-grade commercial building with cinderblock/concrete walls. The commercial business operates as an affiliated gasoline station with two underground storage tanks and six dispensers covered by a canopy. The site was entirely paved with concrete and asphalt. Overall, the topography was relatively flat with a distinct slope to the west-southwest. Surrounding properties were a mix of commercial and industrial properties.

Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Scope of Services (Typical):

Phase I ESA of the subject site in an effort to identify “recognized environmental conditions” (RECs) associated with the subject properties. The ESA will be performed using ASTM E 1527-21 as a guideline in determining an appropriate level of inquiry.

  • Visual reconnaissance of the subject property by a “qualified environmental professional” experienced in performing environmental site assessments who will look for obvious signs of past or present environmental contamination, waste disposal or other activities that would be of environmental concern;
  • A driving reconnaissance of surrounding areas to locate potential off-site environmental concerns;
  • Ccommission a research company to provide a records review to determine if the subject property or surrounding areas are listed on any of the available databases;
  • Consultation with local emergency response officials;
  • Attempt to interview persons familiar with the subject property, including property owner(s), in an effort to identify prior or existing environmental concerns affecting the property;
  • Provide a questionnaire form to be completed by the User(s) pertaining to their knowledge and other pertinent aspects of the subject property, as now required by the ASTM standard;
  • Review of the Chain of Title search provided by the User in an effort to identify property uses that would be associated with an above average potential for contamination;
  • File review for records identified in database reports or interviews regarding the subject Property or adjacent properties; and
  • Upon completion of the assessment, prepare a single narrative report for the subject property presenting our findings with conclusions and opinions along with copies of pertinent historical documents, regulatory database search, maps and photographs.
