Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, Severson/Selinco Properties; Sequim, WA; Washington State

Department of Fish and Wildlife Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife, on behalf of the Trust for the Public Lands, retained White Shield to conduct a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) of the Severson/Selinco Properties, LLC/TPL located in Sequim, Washington. These properties consisted of approximately 100 acres of agricultural and undeveloped land along the Dungeness River. The assessment was performed in accordance with the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) E 1527-00. The purpose of the ESA was to evaluate the likelihood for the presence of recognized environmental conditions (RECs) at the site. White Shield reviewed available information from various sources with respect to the historical uses of the property, including assessor’s records, permits, historical maps, and aerial photographs. Based on our studies and observations, it was concluded that two 200-gallon above ground fuel storage tanks and five drums of unknown petroleum products located in and adjacent to a barn on the northern portion of the subject site were RECs.
