Often we are undertaking Phase I Environmental Site Assessments as Pre-Purchase Inspections for clients for potential contamination however it is important to be aware that Phase 1 ESA’s also provide additional information. Recently we were contacted by a client who had purchased a property and later found out that some of the Wetlands on the property had been filled by the previous owner. This led to a burden on the new owner including significant costs and a lot of stress to address this issue. A Phase I ESA for the site which had the wetlands filled, would have likely indicated this Wetland filling as these reports examine a range of historical aerial photos.

Detailed Site Assessments are undertaken to determine the current nature of the site and any limitations to the reclamation so that a realistic timeline and outcome can be achieved. Historical enquiries and assessments are undertaken which often includes a Phase I ESA and historical searches and aerial photo interpretation to provide information on the existing conditions on the site as well as its former condition. Most often, the former condition of the site is what the goal is for the reclamation however sometimes there is a change of use for the site and the Land Reclamation should aim to achieve those objectives for the lands future use.

This is often termed Environmental Site Characterization. This is required to assist in the formulation of a Remedial Action Plan or (RAP).
