Environmental Site Assessments (ESA’s)

An environmental site assessment is a report prepared for a real estate holding that identifies potential or existing environmental contamination liabilities. The assessment is often called an ESA and typically addresses both the underlying land as well as physical improvements to the property. ESA’s are generally performed in two stages (Phase I and Phase II), with remediation following in Phase III if warranted.
