Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA)


Minimize REC Liability

A Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is designed to assess if current or historical property uses have impacted the soil or groundwater beneath the property and could pose a threat to the environment and/or human health. If a Recognized Environmental Condition (REC) is found, that could present potential liability for the lender and/or owner, as well as affect the value of the property.

Analysis and Action Steps

Once a Phase 1 ESA report is done, Cardinal will summarize what concerns, if any, were identified on the property and make recommendations about what actions, if any, are needed to address those concerns. The Phase 1 ESA meets all ASTM guidelines.
