Promoting Safe, Healthy Environments for Children
Union County is home to thousands of families, and all of them want to know that their children are safe in their daycare centers, homes and schools. That’s why we offer in-depth environmental assessments specifically targeted to childcare facilities.
For many years now, Paul Sakson Environmental has been a trusted name in New Jersey. We specialize in conducting site assessments in our state’s childcare industry, and we know exactly what’s required to maintain a safe, healthy environment.
Environmental Site Assessments in Union County
1) Preliminary Assessments
To comply with state regulations, your new or relocating Union County childcare center or school will need a Preliminary Assessment. Reach out to our team, and we’ll send a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) to conduct an assessment and issue a Response Action Outcome (RAO).
2) Phase I Environmental Site Assessments
Are you refinancing or purchasing a commercial property in the near future? Schedule a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) with our team. We’ll ensure the facility location meets all the necessary environmental regulations through detailed research and reporting and satisfy any bank loan requirements.
3) Transaction Screens
Our Transaction Screens are a cost-effective assessment alternative to the Phase I ESA. A highly qualified scientist will visit your facility’s location, learn its history, conduct research, and interview stakeholders.

Frequently Asked Questions
The Preliminary Assessment and Remedial Action Outcome letter is usually completed in 30 days upon receipt of all available documentation.
The cost is largely dependent on site-specific conditions. The average cost ranges from $1,500 to $3,000 for most sites. Sakson can provide a free cost estimate for your specific project. This does not include the NJDOH fee, which is $1,500 for an initial application.
It depends. Some gasses, such as carbon monoxide are easily detected with a battery operated detector. For more complex contaminants, such as formaldehyde, volatile organics, and mercury, it’s recommended to have a professional take care of this for you to ensure no variants get missed.
Humidity has a huge impact on your indoor air quality. Buildings with high humidity are breeding grounds for pollutants and bacteria. This can lead to issues like breathing problems, allergies, coughing, and so on. However, some contaminants, such as formaldehyde and volatile organics, are present in even low humid environments.
Although you may be connected to city water, or a private water company, lead and copper contaminants may enter your water supply through your interior piping. This is a common occurrence in very old houses or buildings, and newer structures that have recently installed copper lines, or may have used lead solder. Lead and copper are both contaminants that can cause a variety of adverse health effects.
