It took us over 18 months and numerous hours of deliberation and discussion, and now it’s finally here and available for everyone’s use:
This white paper was developed by several of us on the ASTM E1527 Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Task Group, each a member who actively participated in the historical resources focus group.
As stated by Julie Kilgore, ASTM E1527 Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Task Group Chair:
“This valuable and informative resource has wide applicability to our industry, both for seasoned practitioners seeking insight from the Task Group’s industry outreach effort, as well as for less experienced assessors who will benefit from the detailed guidance included. Review and incorporation of the guidance provided [in the white paper] will aid in achieving the objective of good commercial and customary practice in quality Phase I Environmental Site Assessments.”
It was an honor and a pleasure working with Hank Burnham, Jeri Massengill, Georgina Dannatt, and Elizabeth Krol to prepare this white paper.
Thank you also to Julie Kilgore for contributing the paper’s forward and for her dedicated and continued support.
