Sand County Environmental recently constructed and planted a phytoremediation plantation to treat groundwater contaminated with nitrate at an agricultural co-op in eastern Wisconsin. The plantation is irrigated with solar pumps placed within two monitoring wells at the site where groundwater is impacted. The nitrate in the groundwater acts as fertilizer for the trees, and the trees have shown great signs of growing success in their early stages. This system acts as a viable alternative to the conventional pump and treat systems at other contaminated sites. ... See MoreSee Less

When purchasing a property, researching the history and investigating the current conditions are imperative to ensuring that the buyer is not inheriting an environmental cleanup. There are two ways to analyze the environmental condition prior to purchasing a property: a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) and a Property Screen Transaction Screen Analysis (TSA). Sand County Environmental performs both analyses, but what are the differences between the two?
Both investigate the environmental condition of the property, are governed by ASTM standards, and may be required by lenders . A Phase I ESA provides a higher level of analysis and more extensive investigation and reporting than a TSA. A Phase I ESA limits the liability of the buyer if contamination is found at the property in the future. Phase I ESA’s tend to take longer to complete, and they tend to be more expensive than TSA’s. Neither requires sampling or remediation.
Simply put, Phase I ESA’s are more extensive and provide some liability coverage, while a TSA does not. However, both analyses have been used by our clients, and are applicable in different situations. Contact Sand County Environmental for all of your environmental assessment needs.
