A Stage I Preliminary Site Investigation (PSI) is the first step in evaluating the likelihood of soil or groundwater contamination to be present at a site from current and historical uses.

Stage 1 PSI's are also referred to as Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessments, or Phase 1 ESA's.

Identifying whether potential environmental liabilities exist, at an early stage, can circumvent many unforeseen obstacles which may affect the value of the property.  A clean site is a good site, both for the environment and the interested parties.

A Stage 1 is a non-intrusive investigation that does not require physical soil or groundwater sampling or analysis. The scope of work for a Stage 1 report includes an inspection and photographic documentation of the site and adjacent properties, a review of land use and permitting records, analysis of historical air photos, an historical directory search, and interviews with knowledgeable sources. Searches of the Contaminated Sites Registry may also be conducted if necessary.

A Stage 1 provides due diligence for property vendors, prospective purchasers, and lending institutions, but may also be used to collect indispensable baseline environmental information about the subject property for future uses and activities.

RJS Stage 1 reports are conducted in accordance with the Environmental Management Act, Contaminated Sites Regulation, Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Standard Z768-01, and other pertinent legislation and standards within the Province of British Columbia.
