ESE was retained by a multifamily developer to conduct environmental due diligence services associated with a former lumber supply company located in northwest Houston. The developer had plans to redevelop the Site as a multifamily low-rise. The Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) identified one recognized environmental condition (REC) in connection with the Site. The REC was associated with the presence of two undocumented 20,000-gallon gasoline underground storage tanks (USTs). ESE was responsible for the removal of the UST system, investigation of the release, and completion of the risk based corrective actions necessary to obtain regulatory closure.
ESE’s objective was to remove the abandoned leaking UST system and conduct the risk based corrective actions necessary to allow for the residential redevelopment of the site.
