Light Industrial Site in the City of Philadelphia

This site was developed as a light industrial facility (metal recycling and casting) at the time of REPSG’s Phase I ESA, which was completed site in 2005 for a prospective purchaser. The Phase I ESA was conducted in accordance with ASTM Standard Practice E 1527-05, and identified several recognized environmental conditions at the subject property, including the site’s history as a light industrial facility, the presence of asbestos-containing materials, the presence of an aboveground storage tank (AST) containing heating oil, the presence of a kiln and other industrial equipment at the site, and the presence of multiple area sites on environmental databases. REPSG recommended that a Phase II ESA, to include subsurface sampling and analysis, be conducted at the subject property, and also that a comprehensive survey for the presence of asbestos-containing materials be completed.
