Phase II ESA

Phase II Environmental Site Investigation

In-Depth Insight, Informed Decisions

Step 1: Geophysical Investigation (if USTS are a concern)

In the initial phase of the investigation, a geophysical survey is conducted, especially if Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) are identified as potential concerns. This step involves the use of various non-intrusive techniques such as ground-penetrating radar or electromagnetic surveys to assess subsurface conditions and identify potential areas of interest.

Step 2: Soil Boring and Temporary Well Installation with Sampling Collection

Following the geophysical investigation, soil boring is initiated to obtain direct subsurface information. This involves the use of specialized equipment to create boreholes in the soil. Temporary wells are installed to facilitate groundwater sampling. Samples are collected from both soil and groundwater to assess the presence and extent of contaminants. This step is critical in understanding the environmental conditions and potential risks associated with the site

Step 3: Laboratory Analysis and Reporting

The collected soil and groundwater samples undergo comprehensive laboratory analysis. This analysis helps identify the types and concentrations of contaminants present. The results are then compiled into a detailed report, providing a thorough assessment of the site’s environmental conditions. This report serves as a crucial tool for making informed decisions regarding site remediation, regulatory compliance, and future development plans.

Risk Assessment and Mitigation Strategies

Our Phase II Site Investigation goes beyond identifying environmental concerns; we prioritize a comprehensive risk assessment to inform strategic mitigation plans. Leveraging the data gathered from soil and groundwater sampling, we meticulously analyze potential risks associated with identified contaminants. Our team of experts evaluates the concentration, extent, and nature of contaminants to develop tailored mitigation strategies.
The risk assessment process involves a thorough analysis of contaminant levels against regulatory standards and potential impacts on human health and the environment. We consider the site’s characteristics, surrounding ecosystems, and the intended land use to provide a holistic understanding of the risks involved.
