The environmental due diligence industry is in an unprecedented period of transition. The market barely had time to read EPA’s final All Appropriate Inquiries rule (40 CFR Part 312) released on November 1, 2005, when they were hit with another significant development two weeks later: a revised ASTM Phase I E 1527 standard. The federal rule, which recognizes the E 1527-05 standard as an acceptable guidance document for satisfying AAI and took effect on November 1, 2006, gave Phase I consultants less than one year to familiarize themselves with the new requirements. The attached Executive Summary, based on EDR’s 2005/2006 Due Diligence at Dawn workshop series, covers the fundamentals of meeting the new federal pre-transaction requirements, and the details of CERCLA’s post transaction continuing obligations.

Recovery Act Indiana LUST

Indiana — $4.0 Million

Awarded – 07/16/2009

Summary Of Work – The Indiana Finance Authority (IFA) and the Indiana Brownfields Program (Program), on behalf of the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM), will use the LUST Recovery Act money to perform site assessments and remedial actions at petroleum-contaminated sites throughout the state.

The 25 proposed shovel-ready sites throughout Indiana have been identified as orphaned or abandoned sites that are eligible for ARRA funding but for which adequate funding is not available to conduct assessment or clean-up. Some sites may be removed from the list and others added as the site assessment activities are completed. As of September 21, 2009, site work is underway at 14 sites with a total projected cost of $1.46 million. An estimated 36 USTs will be removed in order to undertake site cleanup, which will include the excavation of 11,200 tons of contaminated soil, resulting in the cleanup of 6.56 acres of property.
