Phase 2 Environmental Site Assessment
- Nationwide Bank-Approved
- Certified Engineers & Geologists
A Phase 2 Environmental Site Assessment is a subsurface investigation that includes soil and groundwater testing for contamination. Phase 2 Reports generally include site maps of existing or significant historical land features, as well as information from geophysical surveys.
Phase 2 ESA Objective
The objective of a Phase 2 Environmental Site Assessment is to investigate whether contamination exists underlying a property. Phase 2 Testing is based on the Phase 1 Site Assessment Report.
The Phase 2 Environmental Site Assessment Seekers
A property will generally undergo the testing of a Phase 2 Environmental Site Assessment based on the conclusions and recommendations of a recent Phase 1 Site Assessment Report. However often times at high risk properties, parties directly request a Phase 2 Subsurface Investigation along with a Phase 1 ESA, for a comprehensive understanding of contamination risk.
The Phase 2 Investigation Requirements
Geo Forward Phase 2 Environmental Reports are budget and scope optimized. All scopes of work are prepared by a licensed geologist or engineer, per the ASTM.
The Phase 2 ESA Process
Scopes vary from site to site. A Phase 2 Environmental Site Assessment Report includes testing of subsurface materials by drilling. Some Phase II projects will also require a geophysical survey. Using ground penetrating radar, our team can identify the precise location of underground tanks, utility lines, pipelines, and more.
Clients can also request to customize reporting formats for a Phase 2 Subsurface Investigation.
