-- Many purchasers of Industrial and commercial properties have Environmental Phase 1' performed prior to completing a property purchase. Since a Environmental Phase 1 Assessment consists of Site Inspection and Data Base Environmental Review, occasionally a environmental Issue is missed and the new buyer is stuck with expensive remediation. In New Jersey approximately 95 % of Environmental Phase I Assessments should lead into a intrusive collection of soil and ground water samples known as a Environmental Phase II Assessment. Recent a attorney contact Environmental Systems office and asked if our LSRP's perform Environmental Phase 2 Investigations. The attorney was told that LSRPS' perform all our Environmental Phase I Assessments. He abruptly explained that the property seller did not want any NJ LSRP's performing Environmental Phase 1 Assessments because he did not want any contamination issues reported. NJ LSRP's are required to notify the NJDEP's Environmental Hotline if Environmental Discharges or Environmental Areas of Concern are Identified. Failure to report can cause the LSRP to be disciplined. If a seller does not want to use LSRP, most likely he is trying to hide a environmental issue. In some instances a LSRP or a Environmental Scientist can miss a environmental problem by not performing his own proper " Due Diligence" such as detailed file review, Sanborn Maps reviews or considering all the physical property evidence during the walkthrough inspection. Environmental Systems has over 25 years performing Environmental Phase I And Phase II Assessments and is the number one requested Environmental company to perform Environmental Phase I's by NJ's Leading Banks and financial Institutions.
