Environmental Site Assessments
HKC performs both Phase I and II Environmental Site Assessments as defined below.
Preliminary Assessment - Phase I
HKC has performed several Phase I assessments, for real estate management and
financial companies. Our typical Phase I assessment consists of a site inspection to identify
conditions that might impose environmental liabilities. Phase I assessments may include the
Background data reviews, which include geological
maps, aerial photos, historical records, and regulatory databases
Identification of any suspected asbestos materials
Preparation of maps drawn to scale
Interpretations of the collected data
Preparation of technical reports with Phase II recommendations

Environmental Site Assessment - Phase II
In addition to the Phase I steps above, sites that had chemical storage facilities or used
chemicals in their operations are further investigated to determine subsurface soil and
groundwater conditions. This investigation gives the interested party immunity from
If contamination is found above action levels, having the assessment
performed will immune the purchaser's liability from past contamination, and protect the
seller from any further contamination. Subsurface Investigation is a cost effective method
that protects the innocent while avoiding environmental liabilities and cleanup costs.
Using a Geoprobe unit during soil sampling is a very efficient way to determine soil conditions
at sites with suspected contamination. 15-18 points can be sample in on day.
A fast, effective, and cost efficient method to determine groundwater conditions is to use a
