Services that are typically provided as part of these studies include:
- Phase I ESA which includes an analysis of the significance of effects associated with hazardous materials with respect to CEQA/NEPA
- Phase II ESA which is often performed as a continuance of the Phase I ESA if contamination is detected or suspected to further evaluate the possible contaminants of concern
- Geotechnical and Soils technical studies to provide a general overview of potential impacts related to geologic and geotechnical hazards and conditions associated with implementation of the project
- Hazardous Materials evaluations and studies potentially including sampling and analysis of hazardous materials and wastes including data validation, and asbestos- and leadcontaining materials sampling
