21e site assessments

Prior to a real estate transfer, many lenders and potential property buyers require an environmental site assessment to verify that an environmental condition does not exist on the property under consideration. These "21E" assessments include a review of the historic use of the site, an inspection of surficial features of the property and surrounding area, and if warranted soil and groundwater sampling. While ASTM International provides standards of practice for Phase I and Phase II site assessment, the extent of the assessment may vary widely depending on site specific considerations and the customer's concerns and objectives. A through assessment can save thousands of dollars in otherwise unexpected clean-up costs and years of regulatory red tape. Prior to conducting a site assessment, Vineyard carefully reviews all aspects of the project and then designs an assessment that best meets the customer's needs.
