Environmental Site Assessments

Environmental Site AssessmentsDST has conducted numerous Phase I/II/III Environmental Site Assessments across Canada. A Phase I Environmental Site Assessment consists of a review of historical reports and records, interviews, a site reconnaissance, and other research to identify potential or existing environmental contamination liabilities. This evaluation assesses the underlying condition of the land as well as historical and current usage. If significant environmental contaminating activities are discovered through the Phase I ESA, then a Phase II ESA is undertaken to confirm and describe the presence/absence and extent of contamination. This involves a review of information from the Phase I ESA and the collection of soil, groundwater, and sediment samples in order to quantitatively analyze the presence or absence of contamination. Methods used to collect samples may include the advancement of test pits, boreholes, monitoring wells, or soil vapour collection. A subsequent Phase III ESA delineation study may also be undertaken to describe the depth or spread of a contamination plume. During the Phase III ESA, we aim to further delineate the horizontal and vertical depth of contamination and will undertake further testing, sampling, and monitoring. A Phase III ESA typically also involves evaluation of remediation methods and options, costs, and feasibility of site cleanup. DST also completes National Classification System for Contaminated Sites scoring for contaminated sites under federal jurisdiction. Such studies conform to CSA standards, provincial regulations (eg. O. Reg. 153 as amended), as well as federal CCME methodologies.
