Phase I & II and ASTM Transaction Screening Assessments

LMG is capable of performing "All Appropriate Inquiry" Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) utilizing the current ASTM Standard E1527-13 to help the prospective client obtain the Innocent Landowners Defense under CERCLA. LMG has highly qualified Environmental Professionals on staff that have performed numerous Phase I ESAs at large undeveloped tracts, residential, commercial and industrial properties. In the event that a Phase I ESA determines that possible recognized environmental conditions may exist at a site, LMG can also assist the client by performing a Phase II ESA in compliance with ASTM E1903-11 to determine if there are environmental liabilities at the property. Due to the more stringent lending practices LMG is foreseeing more Phase I ESAs being required by lending institutions. LMG also performs ASTM E1528-06 Transaction Screening Process Assessments; however there is no protection for the client under CERCLA. Land Management Group is a Licensed Professional Geological Corporation and can work with clients if an environmental incident is reported at a site and help the client work through the NC DENR Division of Waste Management regulatory review process to ultimately gain closure at contaminated sites.
