Phase II ESAs are performed in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) E1903-19 standard. When municipalities or developers are required to complete a Phase II ESA, the associated cost of this additional environmental due diligence becomes a key concern. Let's examine the factors contributing to Phase II Environmental Site Assessment costs for brownfield projects.
Gathering the most comprehensive information about the presence of potentially hazardous or toxic substances at brownfield sites is also instrumental in helping land redevelopment projects qualify for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) brownfield remediation grants. Additional EPA funding opportunities include community-wide assessment grants worth up to $500,000 to cover environmental assessment expenses on sites contaminated with hazardous substances and pollutants.
Partnering with an experienced team of environmental professionals helps ensure accurate Phase II ESAs and can help secure funds for brownfield redevelopment projects.
