An environmental site assessment is a specialized
type of site characterization tailored to satisfy
due diligence requirements during property transfers.
A Phase I environmental assessment protects
both the buyer and the seller by identifying
environmental conditions on the property. A
Phase II assessment provides a more detailed
evaluation of the impacts and hazards of conditions
identified in the Phase I assessment.
Typically an environmental assessment may be
required on an abandoned or under used commercial
or industrial property where historical information
indicates hazardous materials may have been
produced, used, handled, or stored.
During an environmental site assessment, information
about past activities and levels of hazardous
or radiological contamination are collected.
This information is used to evaluate the potential
financial liabilities associated with environmental
conditions on the property. An environmental
assessment can also be used to evaluate the
feasibility of the future use proposed for the
