What is an environmental site assessment?

An environmental site assessment includes a study of past and present activities that take place on a parcel of land or site.  Using this information, the possibility of contamination on the site is assessed in addition to the human and environmental health impact of that contamination.  A number of steps are involved in an environmental site assessment including an historical study, site inspection and collection and testing of soil samples (and possibly groundwater samples) culminating in a final report.

A Phase 1 environmental site assessment is typically a preliminary assessment and includes a desktop review of pertinent site information whereas a Phase 2 environmental site assessment uses the Phase 1 information for a more detailed assessment that includes testing to appraise the contamination status of soils and/or groundwater.

An environmental site assessment is performed in accordance with Australian state and territory legislation and policies, Australian Standards and EPA guidelines.
