Course DescriptionThis course will introduce Phase I and II of Environmental Site Assessments (ESA). Phase I-ESA is a nonintrusive investigation identifying liabilities linked to contaminants through site inspection and historical review. Phase II-ESA is an onsite investigation of a property's surface and subsurface, through samples and analysis. This data is necessary for a record of site condition and risk assessment. The students will learn about the specific Canadian Standards and about site assessment in Ontario.
