Additional Property Attributes

The Phase I environmental site assessment revealed evidence of the following recognized environmental conditions in connection with the subject property: � Historical record reviews revealed that the facilities located on the subject property have been used for automotive maintenance and repair since the 1950�s. Entities conducting operations from the facilities have included a full spectrum of automobile maintenance, including but not limited to, body, engine, paint, and upholstery work. Furthermore, there is evidence of automobile salvage having occurred on the property. 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 throughout the site and soil and/or groundwater samples should be collected and analyzed for Polynuclear Aromatic Hydrocarbons PAHs, eight RCRA metals, Semi Volatile Organic Compounds SVOCs, and Volatile Organic Compounds VOCs to identify potential impacts to soil and/or groundwater. � There are many areas of stained soil throughout the subject property. Soil samples should be collected and analyzed for PAHS, VOCs, 8 RCRA metals, and polychlorinated biphenyls PCBs across the property, especially in areas that appear to be most heavily impacted. � An iron pipe located in an open courtyard in the northwest portion of the Southwest Chevy property may be a vent pipe and/or fill port that would suggest the presence of underground storage tanks or a well to discharge fluids to the subsurface. The use and location of this pipe should be further investigated by excavating the area, collecting subsurface soil samples, and analyzing the soil samples for 8 RCRA metals, VOCs, and SVOCs. � The central and western bay of Knight�s Upholstery contain �drain� covers that may have been used in connection with hydraulic equipment or to discharge fluids. The eastern bay of Knight�s upholstery contains a trench covered with metal plates which may have been used to discharge fluids as well. These areas should be further investigated by boring through the foundation and collecting soil samples. Soil samples should be analyzed for PAHs, VOCs, and PCBs. A Limited Asbestos Survey as part of the Phase I ESA at the Southwest Chevy facility, the Knight�s Upholstery facility, the apartment on the subject property, and the back garage, which is currently occupied by Sick Whips. On May 6, 2010, 20 samples of various building materials were collected plus 13 s for 33 analyses and submitted to Fiberquant Analytical Services for analysis by polarized light microscopy PLM. Asbestos-containing materials ACM were discovered to be present in the following locations: � Sample 42-15, collected from the roofing system of Southwest Chevy revealed a of silver paint that contained 2-5 chrysotile asbestos. The roofing system for Southwest Chevy covers an estimated 1800 square feet sq ft. � Sample APT-2, collected from the roofing system of the apartment revealed a of black caulk that contained 5-10 chrysotile asbestos. The roofing system for the apartment covers an estimated 1750 sq ft. � Sample KV-2 revealed a of black caulk that contained 5-10 chrysotile asbestos and Sample KV-3 revealed a of roof ply that contained 30-40 chrysotile asbestos.
