The company’s ESAs identify current or potential environmental contamination liabilities for properties, considering both physical improvements and underlying land. The goal is to assess whether past or present property uses have impacted soil or groundwater, posing hazards to the environment or health. Even if some issues are not discovered prior to property purchase, a completed Phase I ESA can protect the property owner under the Innocent Landowner Defense.
