Phase II Environmental Site Assessments
Phase II Environmental Site Assessments include the environmental sampling and laboratory analyses of various media to confirm the presence, absence, and extent of suspect hazardous materials identified during the Phase I Site Assessment. Satori’s Phase II ESA’s following the ASTM standards set forth in E 1903-97R02. Sampling recommendations are derived from information gleaned during a Phase I Assessment and may include:
- Surficial soil and water samples
- Subsurface soil samples
- Groundwater sampling
- Abandoned drum sampling
- Dry wells, French drains
- Geophysical testing for buried tanks/drums
- Abandoned materials
- ... and more
Our comprehensive final assessment report will include detailed reports of sampling activities, analytical results, photographic documentation, and applicable regulatory guidance with recommendations.
Satori Group has developed agency-approved Corrective Action Plans, and performed soil remediation efforts to meet site cleanup requirements. We interface directly with the regulatory community to discuss site objectives and technical approach.
Using the latest field screening technologies to delineate areas of concern during remedial action, our environmental scientists guide onsite remedial activities. Our services help reduce costs while complying with regulatory requirements to ensure the site remains protective of human health and the environment.
Once remedial activities are complete, staff scientists collect confirmation samples to ensure the agreed upon remedial objectives were obtained. A post remedial action plan report is developed documenting the entire site activity.
