    Transaction Screen Process and Historical Documents3

    Title:
    Transaction Screen Process and Historical Documents
    Content:

    I have a client who has requested a Transaction Screen Process for a property that is proposed to come under a conservation easement, therefore, they are not looking for liability protections, merely wanting a low cost envirornmental assessment to determine the likelihood of RECs being present on the property?  The TSP standard states that a review of certain historical documents is required; however, I don't see anything listed beyond the review of Sanborns.  This is for a rural  property, which won't have sandborns.  Do we need to consider other  historical documents at a minimum?

    Unidentifiable Riser Pipe5

    Unidentifiable Riser Pipe
    Content:

    Hello all,

    I came across an unidentifiable riser pipe in an old oil and gas equipment storage yard and cannot identify what it might have been for.  No one who I've interviewed seems to know either.  After lifting up the concrete lid, I attempted wafting the air toward me and did not smell any fumes.  I then got a bit closer to take a picture and there was some sort of liquid approximately 7-8 feet down and could not find anything long enough to stick down and see what it was.  Anyhow, does anyone possibly have any suggestions as to what it might have been for?

    Historic Steam Laundry
    Content:

    Does anybody have experience with small steam laundries in neighborhood commercial urban settings? I have one such steam laundry that existed from at least 1923 but appears to have closed by 1953. Sometime after 1953 the use of the building changed to an auto body repair facility. What is the likelihood that chlorinated solvents would have been used?

    Former loading bay hydraulic lift platform4
    Topic last edited February 27, 2015 by RobertMember in Discussions > Environmental Due Diligence public
    Title:
    Former loading bay hydraulic lift platform
    Content:

    A prior environmental consultant wrote this about an out of service loading bay hydraulic lift platform...

    A former loading bay hydraulic lift platform was observed on the ground directly outside of units 14-16. The former loading bay appears to be filled in with concrete and levelled off with the general area of the Site. It is not known if hydraulic fluid is still contained in the lift platform; however; because it has been filled and levelled with concrete, there is considered to be a low potential that constituents of concern have impacted the soil and/or groundwater at levels of concern.

     

    I'm not sure if I agree with this ? The fact is that the lift may not have been decommissioned properly and a hydraulic fluid reservoir may be present.

    Am I right here ?
    Do these loading bay levelers come up often as RECs ?

    I have attached an image of the dock leveler / loading bay lift platform.

    Thanks,

    We recently saw this during a site visit, but were unable to get closer to better observe it. Could this be an oil well? Or perhaps a domestic well?

    Any insight is greatly appreciated!
