THE ERIS REPORT

ERIS database reports provide current and historical environmental information for any property in North America in a concise and comprehensive manner. Key federal, state or provincial and private sector databases are researched to identify and pinpoint environmental concerns associated with a particular property. ERIS reports are used to aid in the identification of possible environmental risks for commercial, industrial and residential sites. ERIS reports meet the CSA standards in Canada and the ASTM standards in the United States. Each report contains:

  1. A map that displays the subject property at the center of a predefined radius and all adjacent properties that lay there within.
  2. A current aerial that displays the subject property and surrounding areas.
  3. An executive summary that indicates site information such as site name, address, elevation, latitude/longitude.
  4. A report summary that shows databases that were researched and the number of points that lie within preset search distance for each database. (Clicking on the database abbreviation will take you to the database descriptions section).
  5. A site report summary that lists sites within the project property and surrounding properties and indicates distance and elevation difference; sites are sorted by distance and direction. (Clicking on the ‘map key’ will send you to the relevant map; clicking on the ‘page number’ will take you to that site’s detail in the detail report).
  6. A detail report of all the records found within the radius that surrounds the site; these records can be matched to locations on the site diagram by way of the ‘map keys’.
  7. An appendix that lists definitions and database descriptions.
