ASTM-1527-00 Phase I ESA 


Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) for 38 separate properties (Lots) located within a residential area of Detroit. (Approximately 5 Acres Total). The lots were either vacant and covered with low-lying vegetation, or possessed structures exhibiting extensive fire damage.  Soil types were researched by utilizing the Wayne County Soil Survey (issued by the US Department of Agriculture) Groundwater flow was anticipated by reviewing soils types, topographic maps, site specific slopes, existence and location of subsurface utility corridors, if any. A government agency database search was conducted to discover high potential environmental liability sites on and within a one-mile radius of the subject property.  Historical investigation was conducted back to the year 1915.  Determined by reviewing historical Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps, historical aerial photographs, and city assessing and building records, and historical city directories that a portion of the subject property was occupied by a gasoline filling station from 1915 to 1961, and a dry cleaners operated on a portion of the subject property from 1931-1965.  A Detroit Edison substation bordered the above-mentioned former gas station portion of the subject property.  These findings constituted Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs).  Further investigation was recommended.
