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 following:

  • Background data reviews, which include geological             maps, aerial photos, historical records, and regulatory          databases
  • Title search
  • 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

    Fuel equipment environmental liability

    Fuel equipment at this location resulted in an environmental liability.




    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 environmental liability.

    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.

    Geoprobe Unit

    Geoprobe Unit
    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.



    Temporary Well

    Temporary Well
    A fast, effective, and cost efficient method to determine groundwater conditions is to use a temporary well.
