Metro Parks

Environmental Site Assessments at Various Properties
Various locations throughout Central Ohio ( 2004 - Present )

For the Columbus and Franklin County, Ohio Metro Parks system Stone Environmental has completed nearly forty Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) since 2004, covering a land area of approximately 3,500 acres. All projects are completed pursuant to the current ASTM standards and/or U.S. EPA AAI rules. Properties have consisted of various land uses such as farmland, pasture, camp sites, wetlands, and sensitive riparian corridors.

Detailed historical and current information reviews are conducted to determine current and past land uses.  Such reviews consist of historical aerial photographs, soil surveys, historical topographic maps, Sanborn Fire Insurance maps, city directories, deed transfer records, fire and health department records, ODNR water and oil well logs, and various environmental databases such as BUSTR, U.S. EPA, Envirofacts, and The Right-to-Know Network.

All ESAs have included methodical site reconnaissance and photographic documentation.  Interviews of those familiar with the site are completed, such as owners/occupants and local agency officials.  Comprehensive written reports of the findings are assembled, including figures and photograph presentations.  All reports are submitted in a timely manner, as required by the client.
