Phase 2 Project Profile

CHALLENGE:

Phoenix Environmental was retained to conduct a “short fuse” portfolio project consisting of multiple Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) and six Phase 2 ESAs of oil change facilities. The sites were complicated by the use of a variety of petroleum products, solvents, and numerous aboveground and underground storage tanks.

Additionally, the sites which were undergoing foreclosure, required strict confidentiality by Phoenix personnel throughout the project.

SOLUTION:

Phoenix personnel conducted the Phase 1 ESAs and identified numerous Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) on a portion of the Phase 1 ESA sites. The purpose of the Phase 2 ESAs was to determine if impacts were present, evaluate the extent of contamination, determine relevant receptors, contaminant pathways and applicable clean-up requirements. Our services included Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) surveys, installing soil borings and temporary monitoring wells, and collecting soil and groundwater samples.

RESULTS:

Of the sites investigated, only two indicated significant concerns to the client. The results of the Phase 2 ESAs were used to assess liability and costs associated with clean-up of contamination. The assessments were completed within the proposed budget and ahead of schedule.
