Phase I Site Assessments
ARM’s Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is designed as an economical study that incorporates a professional property inspection with interviews, regulatory list review, record searches, and aerial photograph research. As per the American Society for testing and Materials (ASTM) guidelines (designation: E 1527-06), the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is comprised of four components:
1. Site Reconnaissance
2. Regulatory List/Record research
Phase II Site Assessments
If impacts are found on the subject property, ARM will prepare a workplan to remediate the areas of concern found on the subject site. These events might include soil and groundwater testing, UST removal, AST removal and/or soil removal.
A Brownfields site is an idled, underused, or abandoned property where the impact or threat of an environmental impact has hindered the properties redevelopment. The North Carolina Brownfields Program is the state’s effort to help in the redevelopment of the property. ARM helps in the redevelopment of the properties by completing a Brownfields Assessment and Receptor Survey.
