If the first phase of environmental assessment reveals possible sources of contamination, a Phase II ESA becomes necessary. Phase II includes the sampling, testing and analysis of the site. An environmental professional will collect samples of soil and water on the surface, soil borings below the surface, soil from catch basins, as well as any materials left in drums on the property. This phase also involves testing the property for any underground storage tanks or buried drums.
The completion of Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments is crucial to informing you about the commercial or industrial property you intend to buy. Contact us today to talk with one of our certified experts or schedule environmental assessments for Chicago properties.
