Fort Worth Phase I ESA: Former Cement Plant

Property Type: Industrial – former cement production plant.

Location: Fort Worth, TX

Duration: 7 day turn around

Services Performed: A comprehensive Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) was conducted by EnviroPhase to verify environmental liabilities, assess environmental risks, ensure environmental compliance, analyze risks associated with property investment, and investigate potential contamination through a thorough site inspection, including an examination of the site’s history.

History: EnviroPhase conducted a comprehensive Phase I Environmental Site Assessment at a former cement production plant with a history spanning over 30 years. An 8,000-gallon Underground Storage Tank (UST) containing unleaded gasoline was successfully removed from the Subject Property. The Fort Worth Fire Department conducted a thorough inspection of the tank for leaks, and soil samples were meticulously collected. 

Laboratory analysis results indicated that the concentrations of Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) and Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene, and Xylene (BTEX) were found to be below the Texas Natural Resource Conservation Commission’s (TNRCC) cleanup guidelines. Following the successful removal and analysis, the excavation site was promptly backfilled and compacted, ensuring the property’s environmental integrity.

Results: TCEQ No Further Action (NFA)
