Environmental Site Assessment – ESA

In the environmental site assessment, remediation, and decommissioning, Abatech provides consulting services at
every stage as follows:

•  Environmental site assessment (ESA) Phase I and Phase II
•  Sampling of soil, groundwater, surface water and sediments
•  Determination of the extent of site contamination
•  Design of remediation and decommissioning
•  Monitoring and inspection of cleanup activities
•  Classification of waste and control of disposal
•  Liaison with authorities
•  Record of site conditionDetermination of environmental condition and identification of potential contamination on a piece of land is one of the most important steps in a real estate transaction. The likelihood of contamination is usually identified during a Phase I
environmental site assessment.

To establish the presence of actual contamination on site, a more comprehensive investigation is undertaken. The process of Phase II ESA involves sampling and assessment of soil, groundwater, and surface water as well as the assessment of buildings and structures. Depending on the planned use of a piece of land, different environmental criteria are applied in the assessment. Where necessary, an environmental cleanup involving remediation of soil, surface water, groundwater and sediments is undertaken. Upon proper cleanup and remediation a site condition report is issued.

In industrial settings, an assessment and decommissioning of process equipment is often required. Where possible, recycling is attempted.

From our base in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), we extend our environmental site assessment services into all of Ontario and Canada.
