Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?
- While replacing municipal utilities the excavation contractor pulls up a greenish-gray bucket of soil smelling like diesel fuel.
- During construction of a new downtown office building on an existing parking lot, it was discovered that the previous building had simply been knocked-down and buried beneath the pavement.
- Redevelopment of a blighted property is all set to go, as soon as the abandoned buildings can be safely torn down and properly disposed of.
Historical activities that occurred on or adjacent to a property often leave hidden contamination or buried debris in the subsurface. Sometimes even the existing building materials can be hazardous, such as the instance of asbestos or lead-based paint. Learning about these environmental issues during construction or redevelopment can often result in delays, change orders, and project overruns.
