you are interested in fast and inexpensive research on a property
and the sites surrounding the property, EEC will provide a
Records Search. This study will search government databases
including the property and up to a one mile radius around the
property. One should be cautioned that this product does
not constitute due diligence on the part of the purchaser.
It will simply provide a summary of the types of reported and
registered sites in the area.
report comes with a computerized color map showing the property
at the center and any sites found on the databases surrounding the
site. We also include color digital photographs that will bring
the project to life and illustrate the property in vivid detail.
All telephone conversations will be summarized in the report findings
and the actual telephone memos can be found in the appendix of the
report. The report will be presented in written form and a
copy will be provided on CD. The following is a summary of
the databases we search:
Priorities List (NPL)
Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA)
Priority List (SPL)
Further Remedial Action Planned (NFRAP)
Action Facilities (CORRACTS)
Underground Storage Tanks (LUST)
Storage and Disposal Facilities (TSD)
Waste Landfills (SWLF)
Storage Tanks (USTs)
Response Notification System (ERNS)
Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) Large Quantity Generator
and Small Quantity Generator
State Specific Databases
Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) can protect the assets
by offering the degree of detail required to legally meet the
due diligence obligations. Our reports will meet or exceed
the ASTM-E-1527 standard for our Environmental Site Assessments.
In some instances, further testing of media may be required to meet
this obligation. However, because our reports exceed industry
standards and our professionals are meticulously trained and experienced
in ESAs, our recommendations result in fewer sub-surface investigations.
testing is needed at a property to definitively address an unknown
condition, we can provide Environmental Site Assessment Services.
We will try to save money by reducing the number of samples by first
researching the conditions at the project. We will use the
site topography, known or estimated groundwater depths and, if available,
existing surrounding sub-surface studies to develop a sampling plan.
ESA projects include several different sampling techniques and media;
surface soil samples, soil gas sampling, subsurface soil and groundwater
samples from borings and monitoring wells, surface water samples,
pond sediment sampling, drinking water samples, drum testing and
tank testing. All of our samples are properly preserved, documented
on a chain of custody and delivered to a North Carolina state certified
laboratory for analysis. The results of our testing will be
described in a comprehensive and easy to read report complete with
drawings, digital photographs and recommendations.
contamination is found and the conditions are suitable, we will
apply to the appropriate regulatory agencies for closure with no
further action. If necessary, we can provide planning
and design services for Environmental Remediation projects.
