    Title:
    HUD Phase I ESA
    Content:

    We've been asked to perform a Phase I ESA in support of NEPA review and preparation of a HUD Environmental Review Rercord.  I'm not very familiar with HUD requirements for a Phase I, but it looks like ASTM E1527-05 is sufficient.  I see that HUD's MAP guidance also requires the Vapor Encroachment Screen from ASTM E2600-10.  This isn't a MAP project, but we'll probably include the screen anyway.

    Are there any other HUD requirements that go beyond ASTM E1527-05 and ASTM E2600-10 that we should consider?

      I've never completed a HUD Phase I, but I previously did some research for a proposal. I'm not sure what your client specifically wants, but I would refer you to HUD Form 4128 at http://www.hud.gov/offices/adm/hudclips/forms/files/4128.pdf. HUD, similar to the FCC or FHA, combines the property transaction process with NEPA requirements for federal funding. The form includes many components beyond the scope of a Phase I ESA, such as review of ecological and cultural impact and noise survey. One question I would ask is whether completion of this form is a requirement.
