Phase I & II Environmental Site Assessments

A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) is a risk management tool for lenders and potential purchasers of industrial, commercial, and agricultural property. The goal of a Phase I ESA is to identify Potential Environmental Concerns and Recognized Environmental Conditions (REC) associated with the subject property. The Phase I ESA process involves research into the historical land uses of the subject and neighboring properties, research into local, provincial, and federal regulatory environmental files and databases for the subject property and a site reconnaissance of the subject and neighboring properties.

The results of a Phase I ESA may indicate further assessment to determine if a regulated environmental condition exists. Soil and groundwater sampling is conducted during Phase II in order to determine actual site conditions. Each Phase II ESA is designed to help our clients make informed decisions regarding their involvement with property. If contamination is found during the phased Site Assessment process, the project may proceed to site characterization and remediation if necessary.

Record of Site Condition

A Record of Site Condition (RSC) sets out the environmental condition of a property at a particular point in time, based on its intended use. A Qualified Person prepares the RSC.

An RSC must be filed to the Brownfields Environmental Site Registry when a property use changes from an industrial to a residential use. Before filing an RSC, the property must be properly assessed and shown to meet the soil, sediment and groundwater standards applicable to the intended use for which the RSC is being filed.

Once an RSC is filed, it provides protection from some environmental cleanup orders for property owners who want to redevelop a brownfield site.

After a completed RSC is submitted, the Ministry of the Environment reviews the RSC and provides the property owner with:

1. An acknowledgement that the RSC has been filed

2. A notice that the RSC has not been completed in accordance with the regulations, or

3. A notice that the Ministry intends to conduct a technical review before the RSC can be filed.

Functional Servicing Reports

A developer must obtain an approval on a complete Functional Servicing Report (FSR) prior to submitting a development application to the Municipality.

The FSR describes the features and layout of the site development together with the detailed engineering that demonstrates the feasibility of the services requiring approval from the Municipality. The FSR ensures that the proposed development can be serviced for its intended use, and that all on-site and off-site servicing requirements are identified. The FSR focuses on the following:

Stormwater Management (SWM) Report


Stormwater Management reports are often required to obtain site plan approval for development. Stormwater Management (SWM) Report summarizes how the proposed design will meet the SWM water balance, water quantity and water quality requirements for the proposed development.

A number of guidelines are available including but not limited to:
1. Stormwater Management Design Guidelines, prepared by the Cities
2. Stormwater Management Planning and Design Manual, prepared by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change
3. Wet Weather Flow Management Guideline (WWFMG), prepared by the City of Toronto November (2006).

Computer-aided design (CAD) programs are used for modeling the hydrology and hydraulics (H&H) of stormwater runoff. The use of such programs as a tool has grown as rules for managing stormwater have become more stringent. H&H software such as HydroCAD is important in the implementation of the Low-Impact Development approach to stormwater management that is gaining popularity throughout the U.S. and Canada.

In addition to the above mentioned we have many years professional experience working in hydrodynamic and water quality studies, water and wastewater engineering. Our interests and expertise include but are not restricted to five problem areas:

We have worked on the treatment of groundwater contaminated with arsenic and organic material. We have been applying our expertise to numerous projects including surface water and deep sea Geo-hazard modeling amongst others. Our experts have used programming languages FORTRAN and MATLAB for implementing numerical methods. We are also experienced in the application of standard process-based transport models including the SMS models FESWMS, RMA2 & 4, ADCIRC, M2D, StormNET, XPSWMM, the HEC suite of models, as well as CAD, and GIS programs.  We are experienced in work place curriculum development. We have been responsible for delivering various work-related subject specific, technical and job specific training.
