Our experienced and dedicated professionals can find the balance between development and environment to provide personalized, effective solutions to any project challenge. When nature hangs in the balance, Martenson and Eisele, Inc. is ready to discuss your environmental needs.
What is a “wetland?” What land is classified as wetland and what isn’t? These questions must be answered before any development can take place on land that potentially contains wetland area. Addressing the presence of wetland areas on a site and taking the appropriate action when dealing with projects that affect them, saves valuable time in the development schedule and avoids costly redesign delays.
Should a contamination issue be identified during the course of a Phase I ESA, additional testing will be recommended. Phase II testing involves the testing of suspect areas to confirm or deny the presence of hazardous substances. If contamination is indeed present, a detailed testing program (Phase III ESA) outlines the extent of the contamination and provides necessary data to compile an efficient and cost-effective remediation plan for the site.
Wetland impact can sometimes be unavoidable during the construction of a project. Martenson & Eisele, Inc. can help you with your General or Individual Wetland Disturbance Permit. We can also assist in permitting pond creation, as well as alteration to existing ponds.
Environmental Transaction Screens provide a modified environmental assessment and level of assurance during commercial real estate transactions for properties that do not have a history or indications of environmental problems. These screens do not provide coverage for the innocent landowner defense.
The potential for hazardous-waste contamination liability hovers ominously over every party involved in any piece of agricultural, commercial or industrial property that changes hands. A Typical Phase I ESA includes review of records, site reconnaissance, interviews with owners, occupants, and local government officials and a report of findings for a Phase I ESA.
