Brownfields Program

Phase I ESA Site Nomination


The Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is a preliminary look at a possible brownfields property. It is limited in nature and involves records research and an on-site visual, but rarely testing. Phase I ESAs identify recognized environmental conditions in which a past, current or potential release of contaminants may have occurred.  Identification of a recognized environmental condition does not mean a release actually occurred or, if it has, that it requires cleanup. The Phase I report does not obligate reporting of conditions to regulatory agencies for action except in special circumstances of extreme imminent threat to public health. Conducting Phase I ESAs provides essential information to parties of the property transaction including,

  • Liability protection from future enforcement for owners
  • Clearing properties of environmental issues for future sale or redevelopment
  • Gathering future information where actual testing/measurement should occur if further information is warranted
