Howell is excited yet again to bring a new service to our company! This week Howell acquired ePhase, a West Chester firm that performs Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs). I, Amanda Schneider, PE, will be leading the ePhase team into this next chapter.

For the past 25 years, the ePhase team has been performing exclusively Phase I ESAs across the country. It is important to note that the exclusive Phase I ESA work we do is the most objective out there in the industry (i.e. no conflict of interest). ePhase has performed thousands of Phase I ESA reports, and the team is not only proficient in Phase I ESAs, but we also all have experience with Phase II and beyond.

For those who don’t know, a Phase I ESA is a property assessment that includes a thorough review of the current and historical uses to determine the likelihood of Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) associated with the subject property. Typically, financial institutions require Phase I ESAs for funding real estate sales and refinances. But more importantly, a Phase I ESA allows the owner to qualify for the innocent landowner defense (ILD). The ILD protects the property owner from third-party claims to CERCLIS liability.

Please reach out with questions and if you have any requests for Phase I ESAs!
