SJRE was contracted by A. Top Real Estate, LLC to perform a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) for the vacant lot property located at 9720 East Easter Lane in Centennial, Colorado. The Phase I ESA was intended to serve as an all appropriate inquiry regarding the potential for Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) associated with the Subject Property. The ESA was conducted in adherence to the methods and procedures described in the ASTM Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process E 1527-05.
The Site consisted of approximately 1.54 of acres of undeveloped land and was within a 100-year and 500-year floodplain. The area was generally developed for light commercial, warehousing, industrial use in Centennial, Colorado. However, the Subject Property had been undeveloped property since mid-1942, according to the information provided by EDR. Based on location, runoff and surrounding properties, SJRE determined that previous uses of the property were not likely to represent a REC or an environmental concern to the Subject Property. Although, several piles of debris and trash such as logs, bricks, PVC pipes, twigs and branches present on the Subject Property were recommended to be disposed of as solid waste construction debris.
SJRE performed a Records Review, in which our Environmental Professional obtained and reviewed records to identify potential RECs or HRECs in connection with the Subject Property. Federal, State and local records regarding the Subject Property were reviewed, as well as data provided by EDR, as in accordance with current ASTM standards. Results of the search identified 4 closed Leaking Underground Storage Tanks (LUSTs) within the immediate vicinity of the Subject Property. SJRE identified the facilities as closed, to the north and at a lower elevation than the Subject Property and determined that the 4 LUSTs have no potential impact on the site.
Based on the Phase I ESA conducted by SJRE, no RECs were identified at the Subject Property and adjacent properties, no HRECs were identified for the Subject Property, no non-ASTM conditions such as ACM, LBP, etc. were identified at the Subject Property, no ASTM RECs or other potential conditions were identified for adjacent properties and no further assessment activities appeared to be warranted.
