Riverfront professionals perform dozens of Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESA) each year, and have an outstanding reputation for providing complete, accurate, useable and understandable Phase I reports. We have the experienced personnel to comply with the upcoming EPA All Appropriate Inquiry Rule relating to Phase I ESA procedures. The purpose of a Phase I ESA is to provide an independent, professional opinion of recognized environmental conditions and potential environmental liabilities associated with real estate. Based upon the results of the assessment, we provide practical, economical and sound recommendations. Riverfront ensures that the work is performed by experienced professionals in accordance with ASTM standards. A Phase I ESA is non-intrusive, and generally includes a site inspection, interviews, regulatory file reviews, site history research, and review of adjacent properties.

When a Phase I results in a recommendation that additional data be collected, Riverfront professionals are equipped to complete a Phase II ESA regardless of the type of condition that is identified. A Phase II ESA usually involves collection and analysis of materials from the site, such as soil or groundwater samples, or building material samples.

Our scientists and engineers are experienced with sample collection and analysis, interpretation of analytical results, and preparation of clear, accurate and complete reports.
