After the Phase I environmental assessment is completed and the results are reviewed, a Phase II environmental assessment (also known as a Phase II ESA) is carried out to measure the level of pollution found at the actual site. 

This assessment was also carried out to find a structured definition of current state costs as well as possible costs and expenses associated with a cleanup project that may be required in the future. To get more details about phase 2 environmental you may check quick links here.

In most cases, the Phase II environmental assessment is used as a baseline study aimed at confirming the level of background pollution that occurred before the facility was built or even purchased.

Understand the scope of work – The scope of work assigned to each specific ESA is specifically tailored to the type of facility and the likely types of materials and chemicals that could be a major problem. 

A brief overview of the investigation – The groundwater vapor research will enable organizations to identify cost-effective methods that will enable them to determine the horizontal distribution of essential oil resources along with chemical vapors in water and groundwater. 

Final report – Upon completion of Phase II of the environmental impact assessment and any relevant additional investigations that may be required, a final design report is prepared and presented. The results from this knowledge can be easily used for future planning purposes to identify new pollutants that may become a problem in the future.
