Phase I and Phase II ESA
Accura performed Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments (ESA) for the area of Georgia State Route 400 (GA 400) in substantial conformance with the scope and limitations of ASTM Practice E 1527-05 and the All Appropriate Inquiries Rule. Accura utilized a commercial database reporting company to provide Federal, State, and Tribal environmental records. Accura conducted a historical review on the past use of the area of GA 400 as a part of the Phase I ESA. We summarized the facilities identified in the vicinity of the area of GA 400 and provided conclusions concerning whether they represent a REC to the Project Site. During Phase II, Accura drilled several borings on the project site to recover soil samples for testing using an organic vapor monitor (OVM) instrument. Several groundwater samples were obtained from soil borings for analytical testing for polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Drilling performed to a depth of 25 feet below ground surface or refusal on rock. Groundwater samples were collected and analyzed for environmental impact. Soil samples were screened at 5 feet intervals to a depth of 25 feet. All soil samples were screened with a Photo-Ionization Detector (PID). The soil samples with the highest PID readings throughout the borings were analyzed.
