Davey Resource Group, Inc. is capable of performing "All Appropriate Inquiry" Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) utilizing the current ASTM Standard E1527-13 to help the prospective client obtain the Innocent Landowners Defense under CERCLA.
DRG has highly qualified Environmental Professionals on staff that have performed numerous Phase I ESAs at large undeveloped tracts, residential, commercial, and industrial properties.
In the event that a Phase I ESA determines that possible recognized environmental conditions may exist at a site, we can also assist the client by performing a Phase II ESA in compliance with ASTM E1903-11 to determine if there are environmental liabilities at the property.
Due to the more stringent lending practices, DRG is foreseeing more Phase I ESAs being required by lending institutions. We also perform ASTM E1528-06 Transaction Screening Process Assessments; however, there is no protection for the client under CERCLA.
Our team of experts works under our Licensed Professional Geological Corporation and can work with clients if an environmental incident is reported at a site. We also help our clients navigate through the NC DENR Division of Waste Management regulatory review process to ultimately gain closure at contaminated sites.
