How long does it take to conduct a Phase II ESA, if that becomes necessary?

When a Phase I ESA report finds a “Recognized Environmental Condition,” a Phase II Environmental Site Assessment report is typically recommended in order to screen the soil and/or groundwater for potential significant environmental liabilities. This timing of the Phase II ESA is generally governed by the availability of a drilling company to conduct the subsurface sampling. Most often, this work can be scheduled within 1-2 weeks after notice to proceed from the client. Obtaining analytical results takes about 1 week from the date of the sampling, and then a final Phase II ESA report is produced within 2 weeks. Typical total time = approximately 4 weeks.
