Environmental Site Assessments in Middlesex County
1) Preliminary Assessments
If you are looking to open a school or childcare facility in the State of New Jersey, you’ll need to comply with state regulations and obtain a Preliminary Assessment of the site. We’ll help with this initial inspection and provide a Response Action Outcome (RAO) letter.
2) Phase I Environmental Site Assessments
To purchase or refinance a commercial property in New Jersey, you’ll likely need a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA). Our highly trained scientists will visit your site, conduct the required research, and prepare an environmental report that clearly outlines the safety of the site, as well as any concerns.
3) Transaction Screens
A more affordable alternative to a Phase I ESA is a Transaction Screen. We’ll send an environmental scientist to your site to conduct research and interview relevant stakeholders. All of our Transaction Screens are performed in accordance with the ASTM Standard.

Frequently Asked Questions
A Preliminary Assessment (PA) and Report need to be completed in accordance with N.J.A.C. 7:26E to satisfy NJDEP requirements. In summary, a PA includes performing the environmental due diligence on the property, including deed search, municipal and county file searches, review of historic documentation such as aerial photographs, insurance maps, and telephone directories, research of industrial directories, and review of government databases. The PA also includes a current site inspection. This information is then submitted to the NJDEP in a Preliminary Assessment Report. The final remediation document, a Response Action Outcome letter, is issued by the Licensed Site Remediation Professional retained by the child care center.
The Preliminary Assessment and Remedial Action Outcome letter is usually completed in 30 days upon receipt of all available documentation.
Every 5 years radon samples need to be collected. Samples need to be collected from each frequently occupied room, which includes classrooms and offices, on the lowest level of the center.
Every 3 years drinking water samples are required to be collected from all drinking water faucets and at least 50% of the child care center’s total number of faucets.
It’s tough to say exactly how often you should get your indoor air quality tested. As you are operating a sensitive site, such as a child care center, you can never be too safe. That said, you may consider testing your indoor air quality at least once a year.
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.
