The primary objective of an Environmental Site Assessment Phase 1 (ESA) is to assess potential sources of contamination that may have affected the environmental condition of a property. In the likelihood of contamination, a Phase 1 (ESA) can reduce uncertainties regarding liability and can also offer a basis for supplementary site investigations.
