The EPA reference to ASTM’s E1527-13 Standard for Phase I Environmental Site Assessment ends on Tuesday, February 13, 2024. For those who have not done so already, it’s time to update processes and templates to meet the E1527-21 standard.
Join Julie Kilgore, owner of Wasatch Environmental Inc., and chair of the ASTM E1527 committee to review specific changes that must be included in any Phase I ESAs going forward.
Some of the changes include, new requirements for:
· Reviewing historical sources;
· Report contents;
· Significant Data Gaps;
and clarifications to:
· The definitions of RECs, CRECs, and HRECs; and,
· Environmental liens and activity and use limitations searches.
