Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment:
The first step in identifying and understanding Environmental Liability. Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) are systematic screening tools used to address potential risk issues and make informed decisions on the Environmental Liability associated with a specific property.
The Phase I ESA does not involve intrusive procedures; sampling and analysis of soil, groundwater, or building materials is not carried out as part of the assessment. The role of the assessor is to document evidence of actual or potential contamination, not to judge the acceptability of risks associated with such contamination.
A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Includes:
A phased approach to Environmental Assessment reduces risk, reduces costs and is the best method to manage environmental liability. A suitable Phase I ESA will gather sufficient information to decide on whether a Phase II ESA ought to be completed. This is a critical planning tool for any further assessment. The success of a Phase II ESA and subsequent Environmental Assessments often hinges on the quality of information gathered during the Phase I ESA.
Ridgeline has the experience and qualifications to complete Phase I and II ESAs for our oil and gas clients in Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia for all property and facility types.
