A Phase III will clearly define the problem and offer solutions on how to successfully remedy it. When contaminated properties pose a significant risk to human health and/or the environment, remediation of the contamination is required. All-Phase uses site-specific data and knowledge of the chemical and physical properties of the contaminants to design the most cost-effective remediation system possible.

  • Technologies implemented for many common contaminants include:
  • Oxygen injection;
  • Chemical injection;
  • Air sparging + soil vapor extraction;
  • Dual-phase extraction;
  • Excavation and disposal.

Phase II

Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (Phase I ESAs) evaluate potential liabilities associated with past and present land uses. All-Phase Environmental Consultants, Inc. (APEC) has extensive experience conducting Phase I ESAs in accordance with ASTM standards.

Property buyers and owners, commercial lending institutions, attorneys, and title insurance firms realize the strict liability and subsequent cleanup costs associated with property contaminated with hazardous wastes. As a buyer, owner, lender, or insurer, you face a myriad of environmental issues such as:

  • Possible responsibility of clean-up;
  • State and Federal Superfund liability;
  • Limitations on property use and value;
  • Asbestos, lead-based paint, and OSHA issues;
  • Insurance requirements

APEC provides clients with the information needed to make decisions on property conveyance and clean-up actions through the following:

  • A thorough visual inspection and photographic documentation of the subject property and adjacent properties;
  • A review of historical records and interviews with current and past owners/operators to determine the past use/uses of a property;
  • A search of federal and state databases and interviews with governmental officials to identify potential environmental conditions on or near a property;
  • A review of local and regional geological maps and other data to determine the physical conditions of a property;
  • A final report that includes a discussion of all the above items as well as a concluding statement and straightforward recommendations concerning all findings.

APEC has several qualified and experienced Environmental Professionals on staff to provide you with high quality and cost-effective Phase I services. We also understand that short timelines are part of most property transactions, and are therefore capable of and committed to meeting client deadlines.

Environmental Site Assessments

Phase I

The purpose of a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment (Phase II ESA) is to define the nature and extent of conditions identified in the Phase I ESA (Link to Phase 1). A Phase II ESA will more clearly evaluate the quantitative liability associated with a property by providing quantitative results.

A Phase II ESA may include one or all of the following:

  • Surface soil sampling;
  • Subsurface (borehole) soil sampling;
  • Installation and sampling of groundwater monitoring wells;
  • Determination of groundwater gradient
  • Additional research into the past and present uses of the property.

APEC has full Phase II capabilities. These capabilities consist of:

  • Years of field experience, including oversight of subcontractors;
  • Thorough knowledge of state and federal sampling requirements;
  • Ownership of current industry sampling equipment;
  • Professional staff members with vast experience in the writing of technical reports.
  • OPS Listed Firm and Individual Consultant Listings
  • Determination of site characterization, including extents, and possible remediation strategies.

APEC has several experienced Environmental Professionals on staff to provide you with high quality and cost-effective Phase II services. We also understand that Phase II Environmental Site Assessments can be critical to resolving liability issues associated with a property, and are thus committed to providing our clients with comprehensive and legally defensible Phase II ESAs.
