Phase II Environmental Site Assessments

While a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) Report is an analysis of historical records and current site conditions, not actual testing of the soil, a Phase II Assessment drills into the soil and acquires samples of the soil, send them to lab for analysis of contamination. The industry standards that govern Phase II Environmental projects are the ASTM E1903 – 97(2002) Guidelines.


Occasionally a Phase I Report can identify a Recognized Environmental Condition (REC) or the potential for soil contamination, and soil testing is required to determine whether contamination actually exists. In most cases are Phase I Report needs to be completed in order to ascertain the scope of work for a Phase II project. The Phase I Reports provide us necessary information such as:
