    1.0 Executive Summary

    Bock & Clark Environmental, LLC (Bock & Clark Environmental) has been retained by, CLIENT to conduct a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) in conformance with ASTM Practice E 1527 -13, Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments. The subject property is located at 1234 Spring Avenue, Escambia County, Atmore, Alabama 36502. The objective of this assessment is to determine the presence or absence of Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs), as defined in ASTM 1527 -13. There are no exceptions or deletions from the ASTM Practice E 1527 -13.

    1.2 Data Gaps

    Bock & Clark Environmental requested information from the City of Atmore Fire Department pertaining to any records of any aboveground or underground storage tanks, reported incidents of fires, hazardous materials, spills, leaks, or other similar circumstances that could be of environmental concern for the subject property. As of the writing of this report, Bock & Clark Environmental has not received a response to this request. This is considered a data gap; however, based on the information obtained, the lack of documentation is not deemed critical and did not affect the ability to identify potential REC(s) associated with the subject property.

    1.3 Findings and Opinions

    Bock and Clark Environmental did not identify activities at the subject property or at neighboring properties (potential offsite sources) that would indicate a significant potential for RECs, based on the information contained in the databases reviewed. However, the following information should be noted:

    Marvins stores and sells old railroad ties. The manufacture or presence of railroad ties typically causes concern for the presence of arsenic contamination. However, as the railroad ties are not manufactured, sprayed, or stored for extended lengths of time on the subject property, the storage of the railroad ties is considered de minimis.

    Bock and Clark observed one 500 gallon, liquid propane containing AST located on the subject property. The AST is associated with the use of propane-powered forklifts on the property, by the Marvins tenant. No evidence of a release or threatened release was noted near the AST.

    Bock & Clark Environmental observed a yellow, chalky residue in the southwestern most detention pond. However, based on the location of this detention pond, down-gradient of the lumber storage sheds; it is the opinion of Bock & Clark Environmental that this residue is actually sawdust runoff from lumber operations. As such, this is considered a de minimis condition.

    Evidence of wetlands was noted on the subject property in the northernmost portion. A stormwater retention pond is located in this area, and vegetation typical of wetlands was also observed within this area.

    At the clients request, in addition to the scope outlined in ASTM Practice E 1527 -13, Bock & Clark Environmental also performed a cursory evaluation for suspect asbestos-containing materials, lead-based paint, and mold.

    An asbestos survey was beyond the scope of this assessment. Although constructed in 1993, it is possible that asbestos containing building materials (ACBM)
