The purpose of a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment is to investigate the surficial conditions at your property to identify any recognized environmental conditions: evidence of an existing release, past release, or material threat of release of oil and/or hazardous materials (OHM) at or in the immediate vicinity of the Site.
