WHAT IS AN ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENT?
- Phase One ESA – Is an investigation of the subject property, adjacent lands and land uses within the study area (250 m of subject site) to determine the likelihood that one or more contaminants have affected soil, groundwater, and/or sediment at the study site. Recognized environmental conditions are individually evaluated as to whether they are triggers for additional investigation via a Phase Two ESA.
- Phase Two ESA – Is completed to determine the presence/absence of potential contaminants of concern within the soil, groundwater, and/or sediment at the study site. The presence of contaminants, if detected, often results in the need for further sampling, analyses and possibly remediation.
WHY DO I NEED ONE?
As a condition of financing, property purchaser’s due diligence, land owner’s negotiation, City/Town/Region has mandated the work for site development and permit issuance, or record of site condition regulatory filing requirement.
- Record of Site Condition – Provides a snap shot of the environmental condition of a property based on the environmental site assessment investigations. Must be filed with the Ministry of the Environment, Conservation & Parks before property use changes (ie. commercial to residential use) can take effect.
- Designated Substances Survey and Hazardous Materials Survey – Utilized to determine the presence or absence of hazardous materials within a building (ie. Asbestos, Lead, Mould) prior to renovation or demolition. Quantifies the amount and disposal requirements for each substance if detected.
