Environmental Professional Services
Environmental Site AssessmentsAES performs Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESA)in accordance with the American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments (ASTM E 1527-05). The purpose of an ESA is to identify, to the extent feasible, Recognized Environmental Conditions (REC) in respect to a particular property. In accordance with the referenced ASTM Standard, an assessment is limited to information, which can be obtained through appropriate inquiry into reasonably ascertainable standard records of environmental, historical, and physical settings, interviews, and site reconnaissance. By definition, no invasive investigative techniques are used nor are any samples collected.
AES performs Phase II Environmental Site Assessments in accordance with ASTM standard E-1903-97 Standard Guide for Environmental Site Assessments:Phase II Environmental Site Assessment Process. The kinds of information gathered in a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment depend largely on the specific site. Tests can include soil sampling, groundwater and surface water testing, air quality assessment, asbestos testing and waste materials/storage tank investigation. Any potential hazard noted in the Phase I ESA should be further investigated and evaluated in the Phase II ESA. Appropriate site testing is performed in a series of iterations as necessary and the results are analyzed by the AES environmental consultant. These rounds of testing and analysis continue until the user is satisfied with the degree of certainty in the consultant's conclusions and can use the results to make a decision. The Phase II ESA includes results of site testing; these data are included in the Sample and Analysis Review and Field Sampling and Analytical Results Review sections. In the Phase II Report Review section, the environmental consultant performing the ESA concludes one of two possible findings: there is no reasonable risk of contaminants being present at the site, or the ESA findings have confirmed the presence of hazardous materials. If the site is contaminated and remediation is necessary, the environmental professional can provide suggestions and recommendations specific to that site.
A Phase III Environmental Site Assessment may consist of site clean-up or predemolition activities such as removal of asbestos, PCB materials or other wastes, above ground or underground storage tank removals, or management of soil and groundwater contaminated by petrochemicals, salt, leachate, radioactive wastes, metals, solvents or other pollutants. Typically, a management plan is developed from Phase II data and the required approvals, such as identification of places of disposal, permitting are sought in the course of contract administration. On completion of work, a verification program is often required to ensure site conditions meet remediation requirements.
NEPA Environmental AssessmentsAES prepares National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) documents for federal actions. The NEPA process consists of an evaluation of the environmental effects of a federal undertaking including its alternatives. There are three levels of analysis depending on whether or not an undertaking could significantly affect the environment. These three levels include: categorical exclusion determination;preparation of an environmental assessment/finding of no significant impact (EA/FONSI); and preparation of an environmental impact statement (EIS). If the EA determines that the environmental consequences of a proposed federal undertaking may be significant, an EIS is prepared. An EIS is a more detailed evaluation of the proposed action and alternatives. The public, other federal agencies and outside parties may provide input into the preparation of an EIS and then comment on the draft EIS when it is completed.
Facility & Compliance AuditsAn environmental audit is an objective assessment of the compliance of a corporation or government facility with applicable environmental laws and regulations. It is based on a review of pertinent records and technical data. The audit is generally undertaken for one of the following purposes: " Assuring compliance with federal, state, and local regulations. " Reducing environmental risks and liabilities. " Cost saving or increasing the efficiency of corporate operations. " Identifying environmental liabilities prior to purchase or sale of property.
Pollution Prevention PlanningPollution is the contamination of air, soil, or water by the discharge of harmful substances. According to the Pollution Prevention Act of 1990, pollution prevention (P2) is defined as: "source reduction and other practices that reduce or eliminate the creation of pollutants through increased efficiency in the use of raw materials, energy, water, or other resources, or protecting resources through conservation". AES can assist our clients in Pollution Prevention activities by identifying source reduction opportunities. By implementing a Pollution Prevention plan, our clients operate more efficiently thus reducing the use and production of hazardous substances.
Personnel & Area MonitoringOHSA requires employers to insure that their employees are not exposed to harmful levels of hazardous substances. AES can provide personnel and area monitoring to satisfy this regulatory requirement. Additionally, AES can provide solutions, such as engineering controls and Personal Protective Equipment protection, to mitigate the identified hazards.
