I Environmental Assessment (ASTM-1527)
The purpose of the Phase I Assessment is to evaluate
the site for the presence or absence of recognized environmental
conditions. TesTech's services will be provided in accordance
with ASTM Phase I Environmental Assessment (E 1527-00)
standards. Preliminary evaluations can include non-ASTM
scope issues such as the following: archeological, flood
hazard, wetlands, asbestos, radon and lead paint.
II Environmental Assessment
A Phase II Assessment may be required to evaluate the
presence and extent of contamination. This is accom-
plished through surface sampling, soil or ground water
sampling via soil borings and temporary monitoring well
installation, or suspected hazardous material sampling.
Lead was a significant component of many types of paint
used in construction, and continues to be used as a
colorant and rust inhibitor where no suitable substitute
can be found. TesTech provides bulk sampling and lead
investigations by a multi-state certified Lead Evaluation
The site characterization will vary in scope depending
on site and contaminant conditions. This may include
groundwater quality studies and sampling, monitor well
installation, and contaminant plume delineation.
Federal Regulations have systematically controlled or
banned asbestos in construction materials since 1971,
but an asbestos-free building cannot be guaranteed without
a thorough building survey. TesTech provides bulk sampling
and asbestos investigations by a multi-state certified
Asbestos Evaluation Specialist
The EPA Indoor Air Quality Department recommends that
structures be checked for radon concentration levels.
TesTech provides radon level measurements by a State
of Ohio Certified Radon Inspector.
Transaction Screen (ASTM-1528)
The purpose of a Transaction Screen is to evaluate an
undeveloped site for the presence or absence of recognized
