Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) are conducted to evaluate the environmental liability as due diligence with any real estate transaction. During a Phase I ESA, the current and historical uses of a property are researched to identify any recognized environmental concerns. SEMS conducts Phase I ESA’s in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments (ASTM Standard E1527) and continuously monitors the changing regulatory requirements to stay in compliance with reporting. A Phase II ESA may be warranted if recognized environmental concerns are identified.
Phase II ESAs are conducted to collect soil and/or groundwater samples for laboratory analysis to determine the presence of subsurface contamination. Our environmental professionals observe soil types, groundwater depths, and utilize field screening techniques to determine what samples are submitted for laboratory analysis. Hydrogeological characteristics are evaluated which may affect migration of contaminants.

Upon completion of site investigations, non-hazardous and hazardous wastes are characterized and transported with a manifest to the proper permitted facility for disposal. SEMS is a licensed water well driller and has the capabilities to install groundwater monitoring and recovery wells for in-situ treatment
