Purpose of a Phase III ESA
During a Phase II ESA Inspection, intrusive testing is performed on a subject property to determine if contaminates are present. If no contaminants are found then the ESA Inspection stops there. However, if contaminants are found during a Phase II ESA then this information will be used to conduct a further investigation in a Phase III ESA to determine the extent of contamination within the meets and bounds of the subject property. It is a much more detailed and intrusive inspection of the property, and is necessary to uncover additional information before remediation work can take place. Phase III ESA's are an intricate part of formulating a remedial scope of work that needs the approval of Municipal, County, State and Federal Environmental Agencies. It also includes a complete scope of work and costs involved with site clean up.
