ReadyEarth was formed by Mr. Jason Bartley, who is a Wisconsin-licensed Professional Geologist (PG), a hydrogeologist, and has been providing professional consulting services since 1995.
ReadyEarth was formed in 2011 to provide services focused solely on our client’s best interests.
ReadyEarth prides itself on fairness, integrity, and being an advocate for our clients.
It’s understandable that environmental issues may be confusing or unwelcome. ReadyEarth will explain our opinions and thought processes to you in common terms and as many times as needed so that you understand the issues with your project.
ReadyEarth meets all requirements of 40 CFR §312.10 as a qualified Environmental Professional to conduct AAI Phase I environmental site assessments (“Phase I”). ReadyEarth can turn your project around on your timeframe and within your budget. We will provide verbal updates as they become available so that there are no surprises in the final report.

Phase II environmental site assessments (“Phase II”) involve the actual collection of samples (soil, groundwater, vapor, etc.) and are intended to confirm the presence or absence of contamination. Phase II sampling may be required to preserve liability defenses or negotiate costs between potential buyers and sellers. Each project and client is different and ReadyEarth has extensive experience developing appropriate scopes to evaluate sites beyond the Phase I.
ReadyEarth is a registered Tank Specialty Firm and Mr. Bartley is a Certified Site Assessor with the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP).
ReadyEarth has performed tank closure assessments at residential, commercial, and industrial sites. Whether tanks are planned for removal or are surprises found during construction, ReadyEarth can assist with coordinating and documenting tank removal, closure assessment sampling, and contingency planning if impacts are encountered.
Site investigations (SIs) are intended to determine the degree and extent of any contamination detected during the Phase II. SIs are broader in scope that Phase IIs and are designed to satisfy the DNR requirements found in NR 716, Wis. Adm. Code in order to move toward closure.
ReadyEarth will consider your business operations, your customers, and the integrity of your property when recommending any sampling.
The DNR has focused its attention on the vapor intrusion pathway. ReadyEarth has developed appropriate procedures to comply with current DNR guidance and has extensive experience in evaluating the vapor intrusion pathway.
ReadyEarth has conducted low-impact vapor investigations in both interior sub-slab conditions as well as exterior soil vapor sampling. If necessary, ReadyEarth can also coordinate the installation of mitigation venting systems (radon-type systems).
Once the SI is complete, it may be required or beneficial to conduct remedial actions at your site. Remedial actions can include using existing or planned construction as a cap (i.e. leave contamination in place), actual removal of material, injections, venting systems (radon-type systems), or monitoring for natural attenuation.
Our clients have quite a few options when it comes to the level and scope of remedial actions that will comply with DNR requirements and still obtain closure.
Search for sites where contaminaion has been reported to the DNR.
Hint - Keep your search criteria general and then sift through the results (e.g "Main" instead of "2005 E. Main St.").
Search for REGISTERED above- and underground storage tanks (ASTs and USTs).
Keep your search criteria general and please note that unregistered tanks could still exist at a property.

The DNR requires evaluation of the vapor intrusion pathway at many contaminated sites. Here is a link to a lot of helpful information.
