Phase I Site Assessment
Environmental site assessments have become an essential part of today's commercial and residential real estate transactions. A Phase I Site Assessment is a visual and historical assessment of the property with the intention of identifying potential environmental liabilities such as asbestos, underground storage tanks, PCB contamination, or other chemical contamination. To assure that the liability is minimized, record searches and interviews with previous owners or operators are normally accomplished.
GIBCO'S reports comply with ASTM E 1527-05 and EPA’s “All Appropriate Inquiries” (AAI) which are the current regulations governing these reports. If needed we also prepare the HUD Form 4128 and environmental checklists required by various state agencies.
Noise is considered a major source of environmental pollution because it represents a threat to the serenity and quality of life in urban population centers. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) made requirement noise pollution as a nuisance and a hazard.
As communities continue to expand, more sources of noise pollution will come into existence. The major contributors to the community are transportation sources such as highways, railroads, and airports. To prevent adverse effects, more consideration is given to noise standards and guidelines for communities to use in attempting to control noise pollution.
HUD has published recommended standards and guideline to use in attempting to control noise pollution. The impact of noise can be altered or mitigated by changing the characteristics of any of the noise elements such as the source and the path or the receiver.
HUD’s regulations require that recipients of Community Development Block Grants and Urban Development Action Grants take into consideration the noise criteria and standards in the environmental review process. HUD’s standards must be met for these activities.
Environmental Regulations, though necessary in today's complex laws, are increasingly difficult with which to comply or understand how to comply.
