Liz Berdugo, PE
This 2-hour course is intended to prepare engineers to conduct Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESA). In general, Phase I ESAs are typically driven by the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) and are done when there is a need to assess the environmental condition of commercial real estate. The course is based entirely on the American Society for Testing and Materials', Standard Practice (E 1528) for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process. The Practice is divided into 12 sections that define its scope, when and why assessments are done, and how to conduct an assessment and subsequent report.
The course includes a thirty-question quiz at the end designed to ensure that the engineer has understood the key concepts necessary for conducting a satisfactory Phase I ESA.
