The Phase I ESA revealed evidence of the following recognized environmental condition in connection with the subject property: � Historical record reviews and interviews revealed that the property has been used as an automobile maintenance and salvage yard since the 1950s. The present tenant has been conducting these types of operations on the subject property since the 1970s. The records review did not provide documentation related to the operation of the facility and environmental assessment, if any, completed at the site. Additional assessment should be conducted and soil and/or groundwater samples should be collected and analyzed for Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons PAHs, eight RCRA metals, and Volatile Organic Compounds VOCs to identify potential impacts to soil and/or groundwater. The completion of this ESA will assist in future redevelopment of the site, primarily for commercial uses.
