Ellis Hospital Phase I/II/Pre-Demolition Survey

August 9, 2017

Chazen conducted a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) of a former recreational vehicle sales and service property. The report was prepared consistent with current standards and also met the requirements of the US Housing and Urban Development Agency (HUD). The scope of work included evaluation of potential vapor encroachment, wetlands, endangered species/significant habitats, noise, explosive/flammable hazards, sole source aquifers and airport clear zones. The property included a showroom, offices, vehicle maintenance and service areas, a modular office trailer, vehicle storage and residences.

After the completion of the Phase I ESA, Chazen conducted a Phase II ESA to assess the recognized environmental conditions and significant data gaps identified during the Phase I. The Phase II investigation included a ground penetrating radar (GPR) survey, shallow and subsurface soil sampling and analysis at drainage and tank areas, shallow groundwater and potable water sampling and analysis, and visual inspection of the interior of a holding tank. During site redevelopment for a new medical facility, no additional environmental issues were discovered. Chazen’s asbestos inspector also performed a pre-demolition asbestos survey of site buildings.
