Phase 1 & Phase 2 Environmental Site Assessments in Iowa Meet Real Estate Due Diligence
The first step to meeting requirements for real estate due diligence is to schedule a phase 1 environmental site assessment. Our Iowa environmental consultants investigate your property for any signs of environmental hazards or contamination. If concerns are found, your next step is a phase 2 environmental site assessment. The phase 2 ESA identifies sources of contamination and develops a plan for environmental remediation.
Our team of environmental consultants has experience with all property types and real estate transactions in Iowa. We evaluate and clean up your property to restore the environment and protect you against liability costs. Our consultants work with you to satisfy all CERCLA and real estate due diligence requirements, including:
- Lender and liability protection
- Lender financing requirements
- Debt requirements
- Equity requirements
- Corporate risk management

Iowa Environmental Site Assessments from Des Moines to Iowa City and Cedar Rapids
The Iowa DNR has a registry of contaminated sites available for public record, but these don’t tell the whole story. When a piece of property for sale or lease is transferred, buying or leasing parties may be unaware of the liabilities they’re taking on. A thorough site investigation, performed by experienced environmental consultants, can insulate new Iowa tenants from liability. When remediation is necessary, choosing the right environmental consulting firm can be the difference between forever monitoring and testing or a streamlined timeline toward closure.

If we discover the property is contaminated, our environmental consulting firm can also provide remediation services.
The first step property owners and buyers take in any transaction is scheduling this service. Have your property assessed by a Phase 1 ESA consultant to check for pollution, hazardous waste & other contaminants!
Unlike Phase I environmental site assessments, a Phase II ESA service is scheduled when a known contaminant is present on the property you are selling or buying. Hire Hyde Environmental to remove your liability!
The accidental excessive release of chemicals and compounds to the environment contaminates soil, water bodies & groundwater. We help manufacturing & distribution facilities handle pesticide & fertilizer contamination problems.
Due diligence is performed when investigating industrial & commercial sites. This involves collecting existing data & information from public & private sources & sampling any potential contaminants on the property itself.
This environmental service is used mainly to assist property owners with investigating the potential human health risks present on a property. Determine the risk of potential exposure pathways with Hyde Environmental!
Take action with air sparging, groundwater extraction or soil remediation when contaminants are discovered on a property. Cleanup is just as essential as a diagnosis - make sure your property is restored to health before you buy or sell it!
In Iowa, many different environmental regulations have been enacted by the government to prevent property owners from leaving land in an unhealthy condition. Hyde Environmental helps clients navigate legal, insurance & technical issues.
While many environmental services are enforced by state governments before property transactions, anyone is free to schedule an assessment through voluntary compliance programs available in select Midwestern states.
Water held underground, saturating the soil or crevices and pores in rock, is known as groundwater. It can be the primary source of recharge to lakes, ponds and streams. Are you unintentionally transporting pollutants to nearby sites?
Volatile organic compounds pose a serious threat to inhabitants in industrial, commercial & residential properties, as many of the most dangerous contaminants cannot be detected without advanced testing equipment.
Iowa Environmental Consultants Conduct Soil Vapor Intrusion Assessments
A Phase I ESA requires assessing properties for environmental threats and potential liabilities, including volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs are hazardous substances capable of migrating through the ground and forming gases which accumulate under and against structures.
Soil vapor extraction is a key component of environmental remediation. In order to know if vapor intrusion is a problem for your Iowa business or industrial property, you need specialty services such as soil sampling, indoor air sampling and groundwater sampling to detect the intrusion.
