Property Assessment / Investigation

Federal and state environmental laws and regulations impose environmental liability on property owners—past and present. A comprehensive and professional environmental assessment is critical prior to the transfer of any property. REPSG’s assessments will identify any past or present activities or conditions that may represent a “recognized environmental condition” according to ASTM E 1527-05.

REPSG performs the complete range of environmental site assessment services, ranging from preliminary investigations (Phase I) through final cleanup and/or remediation.

Phase I Environmental Site Assessment

Here, REPSG specialists determine environmental liabilities that may be visible or already documented to exist on a property. This streamlined, non-intrusive, and cost-effective assessment is crucial in defining the presence or absence of current and past environmental conditions.

Phase I Assessment Services can include

  • Site Reconnaissance
  • Pertinent Interviews
  • Historical Records Search (Corporate and Government)
  • Geological Background Study
  • Wetlands Delineation
  • Assessment of Vapor Intrusion (ASTM Standard E 2600)
  • Completion of HUD Form 4128
  • National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) Compliance Assessments

Phase II Environmental Site Assessment

Where conditions related to environmental liabilities are suspected to exist, but cannot be defined without intrusive investigation, REPSG offers Phase II Site Assessment services. Our experience with Pennsylvania Act 2, New Jersey’s ISRA program, and Delaware’s HSCA program gives you a partner with a distinct advantage in designing the right assessment for your needs.
