ENVIRONMENTAL DUE DILIGENCE & ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW
Environmental Due Diligence and Environmental Review both require a great deal of experience and a broad knowledge of environmental liabilities and environmental impacts. Caltha only assigns our most experienced staff to conduct environmental due diligence and review.
Environmental Due Diligence
Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment (ESA)
Caltha offers Phase 1 ESAs at a very competitive cost for any site in any State. We also offer rapid response Phase I Environmental Assessments over selected geographic areas, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska & Illinois. In these areas, Caltha can often complete ESAs in approximately five business days, subject to availability and an added expedited ESA fee.
Note that in 2013, ASTM revised the Standard Practice for conducting a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment. As of November 2013, Caltha is using the new ASTM E 1527-13 method.

NEPA Compliance and State Environmental Review
NEPA established a supplemental mandate for Federal agencies to consider the potential environmental consequences of their proposals, document the analysis, and make this information available to the public for comment prior to implementation. Although NEPA applies directly to Federal agencies, other public and private entities can be affected by NEPA, if they wish a Federal agency to take action that requires environmental review. Caltha supports a range of clients in meeting NEPA requirements, including meeting documentation requirements for Categorical Exemptions from NEPA and State environmental review requirements.
Caltha has experience with environmental review under various State rules, including New York, North Carolina, Minnesota Environmental Quality Board (EQB), Wisconsin Environmental Policy Act (WEPA) and others.
