Environmental Site Assessments (ESA’s) are used to evaluate and mitigate potential environmental risks associated with a property. These assessments are systematic evaluations of a property’s environmental conditions, aiming to identify and assess any potential contamination risks and are typically conducted prior to property transactions, redevelopment projects, or as part of compliance with environmental regulations. The primary goals are to protect human health, the environment, and assess the financial liability associated with potential contamination.
JHA specializes in Phase I ESAs, which involve a thorough examination of the historical and current uses of a property, as well as neighboring sites. This phase aims to identify any potential environmental risks, such as the presence of hazardous materials, previous land uses, or activities that may have led to contamination. The comprehensive Phase I ESA reports provided to our clients equips them with essential information to make informed decisions regarding property transactions and development.
When a Phase I Assessment indicates potential contamination, JHA can initiate a Phase II ESA, which involves further investigation, including soil and groundwater sampling and laboratory analysis. Our team employs works to pinpoint the extent of contamination. Additionally, JHA offers remediation services, providing practical and cost-effective solutions to mitigate environmental risks. Whether it is soil remediation, groundwater treatment, or the removal of hazardous materials, ensuring that the environmental impact is minimized.
