(SEH) performed a Modified Phase I Environmental Site Assessment of the TH 15 / 33rd Street South Interchange project in St. Cloud, Minnesota. This study identifies potential risk that site contaminants could be encountered during construction activities, or has the potential to migrate through the soil or groundwater from nearby sites to the project corridor. It does not measure the impacts at known or suspected contaminated sites. A contaminated site is defined as a location where a substance that creates a risk to human health or natural ecosystems has been released into the environment. The purpose of this modified Phase I ESA is to identify environmental concerns associated with the Trunk Highway (TH) 15 / 33rd Street South Interchange project (State Project No. SP 7303-48, State Aid Project No. SAP 073-684-004, SAP 073-674-002, SAP 162-151-002). Summary information and conclusions from this report may be used to develop contingency planning for environmental issues associated with construction planning and execution. </p><p>SEH followed MnDOT Office of Environmental Stewardship (OES) guidelines for completion of the Phase I ESA using a modified version of the American Society of Testing and Materials (ASTM) methodology E 1527-05. The purpose of the ASTM standard Phase I ESA is to identify, to the extent feasible pursuant to the processes described in E 1527-05 and in a manner consistent with good commercial or customary practice, Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) and Historic RECs (HRECs) in connection with the project corridor. Specifically, sites are identified as high, medium, and low risk sites. </p><p>Four (4) sites were identified for the project corridor; one high, and three medium risk sites. These are summarized below by site identification number (Site ID). A list of abbreviations is included, following this summary. </p><p>Site ID Site Name Rank Rationale for Ranking 1 Kellys Excavating Inc M Removed diesel UST and an AST observed on-site. </p><p>2 Finski Properties M Active diesel and gasoline ASTs observed on-site.

(SEH) was retained by the City of St. Cloud to conduct a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) of the T.H. 15 / 33rd Street South Road Improvements located in the City of St. Cloud. The area of interest will herein be referred to as site or project corridor and includes everything within 500-feet of the proposed alignments centerline and 1250-feet from effected intersections. The site location and project corridor are depicted on Figure 1, Site Location. SEH identified sites within the project corridor with a numeric identification number which corresponds to the sites referenced in the report, tables, figures and data sheets. Figure 2, Site Features depicts sites identified during the completion of this assessment. This report summarizes the findings of the modified Phase I ESA. </p><p>1.1 Purpose This modified Phase I ESA is being performed to identify Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs) and Historic RECs (HRECs) associated with the TH 15 / 33rd Street South Interchange project corridor.
