If your Phase I Environmental Site Assessment identifies recognized environmental conditions, then a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment is the next step to determine the contamination risk of your site to the environment and the public. At Fehr Graham, we are committed to providing data to ensure you understand the history and potential financial liability of your Iowa redevelopment site and find solutions to reduce risk and keep your project moving.
The steps of a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment
At Fehr Graham, we understand each Iowa redevelopment project is unique and requires a tailored Phase II ESA because it provides a full scope of site-specific data of your site’s contamination risk to the public and the environment.
Our Iowa Phase II ESA experts will review site-specific data, including:
- Chemical analysis of soil samples.
- Number of drilling locations.
- Types of drill rigs.
- Lab testing parameters.
- Local regulations and standards.
What are common methods to rehabilitate contaminated land?
During a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment, the level and nature of a site’s contamination will be evaluated and determined. Once our Iowa Phase II ESA experts examine the site, including soil, groundwater, vapor, and other potential exposure methods, they will recommend how to limit financial liability and comply with federal and state regulations.
- Chemical reduction.
- Barrier construction.
- Soil vapor extraction.
- Chemical oxidation.
What is a technical risk assessment?
Once a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment identifies site contaminants, a Phase II ESA is required to determine the level of contamination and risk to the environment and public health. To determine contamination levels, our experts will perform a technical risk assessment to get a comprehensive picture of the site’s risk. They will compare the consolidated data and will run risk assessments models and vapor intrusion studies to evaluate how dangerous and how far the contamination has spread.
