What does EnviroPhase do during a Phase I ESA?

- Site Reconnaissance: An examination of the property is conducted for visible indicators of potential environmental conditions.
- Individual Interviews: EnviroPhase interviews individuals familiar with the site and adjacent properties to provide information regarding the condition and uses of the property.
- Agency Record Searches: EnviroPhase will conduct a thorough review of governmental agency archives for environmental permits and regulatory action on both the site and adjacent properties.
