PHASE I ENVIRONMENTAL SITE ASSESSMENTS

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 SITE ASSESSMENTS

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.

TANK CLOSURE ASSESSMENTS

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 INVESTIGATION (SI)

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.

VAPOR INTRUSION

The DNR has focused its attention on the vapor intrusion pathway.  ReadyEarth has developed appropriate procedures to comply with DNR current guidance and has extensive experience in evaluating the vapor 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).

REMEDIAL ACTIONS & CLOSURE

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.
