If you’ve already conducted a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, Omega’s experienced environmental professionals will evaluate the results to determine if hazardous materials exist on site. The team will then establish goals for the project and design the scope of necessary work.
Prior to conducting the evaluation, Omega will ensure the process meets the needs of the client as well as any banks, lenders, or attorneys involved.
What is a Phase II ESA?
Depending on what was discovered in the initial Phase I ESA, a Phase II may require any of the following investigations to test for a variety of contaminants on a site:
- Surface soil sampling
- Surface water sampling
- Soil vapor sampling
- Subsurface soil boring
- Groundwater monitoring well installation
- Underground storage tank (UST) testing
- Geophysical testing for drums or tanks buried underground
- Sampling contents of drums left on site
- Sampling transformers/capacitors for PCBs
- Evaluations of chemical fate and transport
- Risk assessment and modeling
Laboratory analysis of samples taken during the assessment will determine whether further investigation is necessary. If hazardous chemicals are discovered on site during the Phase II, a Phase III Assessment may be necessary to determine the extent of the contamination.
