"Dealing with the environmental piece of a loan can be stressful, but Sierra Piedmont took the stress away by being very professional and responsive."

After Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) are identified, a Phase II ESA may be necessary to have a better understanding of potential contamination of the property. This type of study moves the project investigation from a visual, non-intrusive study to one including physical sample  collection, laboratory analyses and evaluation with  local, state and federal regulations.

After evaluating laboratory samples against local, state and federal requirements, there is one of three resulting outcomes:

  1. Samples exhibit no chemicals of concern
  2. Samples exhibit elevated concentrations of chemicals of concern but are below a reporting or action level
  3. The chemicals of concern are above a reporting or action level.

Regardless of the result generated, Sierra can collect, interpret and present you with the data in a clear and understandable way to ensure an informed decision is made.
