Phase II consists of the sampling, analysis and/or more intensive investigative activities, as appropriate, to evaluate the RECs identified in Phase I. The scope of work is dependent upon the results of Phase I, but generally include
- Soil, Groundwater and/or Surface Water Sampling and Analysis
- Areas of highest potential impact based on Phase I concerns
- Site-Specific scope for sampling and testing
- Analysis for constituents potentially present, as identified in Phase I
Sagasser & Associates, Inc. uses various methods for conducting Phase II Preliminary Contamination Assessments, such as hand augers, hydraulic probes (direct push technology), backhoes, truck-mounted drill rigs, etc. The intent of Phase II is to focus the sampling on specific areas or RECs and using an appropriate sampling and analytical protocol that allows for a determination of absence or presence of impact.
