Due Diligence – Village of Mesick
Global performed a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) on three parcels within the village limits that the Village of Mesick was obtaining. One of the parcels contained a vacant building. The ESA was performed in conformance with the scope and limitations of American Society of Testing and Materials Standards (ASTM) practice E 1527-00. The project included a visual inspection of the property and all structures on the property in addition to interviews with current and past owners, local residents and officials who may have had information pertaining to past usage of the property.
A site reconnaissance was performed to identify the likelihood of environmental conditions from past or current uses at the subject property (interior and exterior) through visual and physical observations. A property inspection was performed of associated and adjoining properties to document the existence of stressed, discolored or absent vegetation, stained soils, wells, vents, stacks or odors, above ground or below ground storage tanks, transformers, drums, containers or storage vessels, and waste disposal.
