CONNOR Phase I ESA Reports reflect thorough research of the site property. Aerial photography, historic maps, regulatory databases, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, and interviews provide CONNOR the tools to examine and report on the regulatory status, historic use and environmental issues of the project site and its surroundings. Environmental conditions of the property are reported on in part, from a review of topographic, geologic, hydrogeologic, and hydrologic documentation, obtained and provided by CONNOR.
Assessment and observation of the project site allows CONNOR to detail the general vicinity, current use, building systems, and surface features. These on-site assessments provide information to identify potential environmental hazards such as storage tanks, run-off, and (waste/hazardous) material management. CONNOR’s in-depth assessment determines if there is a need for environmental testing; sampling for Lead-based Paint, Asbestos-Containing Materials and Radon Gas are performed based upon the date of construction and scope of work. Analytical results are discussed in the report identifying these contaminates.
A property status review is performed, and cost-effective recommendations to bring the property into compliance with federal, state and local laws and regulations are presented where needed. Documentation obtained, examined, and created by CONNOR is referenced in the report and presented in a series of appendices. Maps, libraries, questionnaires, certifications, letters, and detailed photographic logs represent some inclusions, customizing the report to meet the directives of the lender.
