Phase II Environmental Site Assessments (Limited Subsurface Investigations)

A Phase II further evaluates properties where Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) have been identified. The primary objective of conducting a Phase II is to evaluate RECs identified in the Phase I ESA or Transaction Screen, for the purpose of providing sufficient information regarding the nature and extent of possible contamination. The Phase II assessment typically includes the collection and laboratory analysis of soil and groundwater samples. Analytical results are compared to state standards. This information is provided to the client and often utilized to make decisions regarding real estate transactions.
