Summit Engineering was contracted to conduct a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment of two adjacent tracts of land located at the intersections of Main Street, Scott Avenue, and May Avenue in downtown Pikeville, KY.
Summit’s responsibilities for the Phase I ESA included:
- Site visit
- Regulatory database search
- Review of historic mapping and photographs
- Review of aerial photography
- Preparation of the Phase I ESA report
The Phase I ESA report examined the location, site and vicinity characteristics, topography and drainage, geology, wetlands, descriptions of site structures and improvements, current uses of the property, current and past uses of adjoining properties, the chain of title, hazardous substances in connection with identified uses, unidentified substances, containers, staining, and stressed vegetation, USTs, ASTs, PCBs, and solid waste disposal.
The site visit was conducted, and information collected from records review, maps, and photographs was used to locate specific areas of concern. An active service station existed adjacent to the study property. USTs had been removed in the past, but 3 tanks remained. One AST was present on the site and several used tires were present. No evidence of leakage was observed, and no petroleum odors were detected.
