The purpose of an Environmental Site Assessment (or ESA) is to assess a site for environmental liabilities, regulatory compliance, liability reduction, and/or potential site restoration. Knowing and understanding the environmental liabilities associated with a property purchase can help create a wise investment. Unknowingly investing in property with environmental liabilities is a risky and sometimes extremely expensive venture.

Highlands Environmental Solutions, Inc. has conducted hundreds of ESAs throughout the mid-Atlantic region of the United States. At sites where environmental liabilities may exits, we employ invasive and non-invasive technologies to assess the severity of impact to the soil, groundwater and surface water by regulated constituents (petroleum, pesticides, chlorinated solvents, metals, nitrates, etc.). Effectively combining in-house capabilities with our network of subcontracted services, we are able to provide site assessment services to meet applicable regulatory and industry standard requirements, as well as, each client's unique goals and budgets.
