This type of study is conducted to evaluate potential risk of contamination at a property. In the event of potential contamination, a Phase II ESA is conducted.
Wetland delineation is an environmental investigation into determining if there are jurisdictional wetlands on the tract. Wetlands can only be classified through scientific evidence that there is hydrology present, hydric soils, and hydrophytic plants together on any portion of the site.
