A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is a means to conduct adequate inquiry into a property's environmental status and to identify any recognized environmental conditions (RECs) associated with the property and surrounding parcels. This involves inspecting the property and collecting historical and current information to evaluate the potential for environmental contamination. EAS personnel are well versed in the regulations and procedure of the most up to date American Society for Testing and Materials Standard (ASTM E1527-13) when conducting the Phase I ESA process to sufficiently satisfy All Appropriate Inquiry (AAI) for potential liability protections under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA). This includes but not limited to a review of regulatory agency files, historical maps and Assessor's records, a vapor intrusion analysis and evaluating the past uses of the property.
