SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The City of West Sacramento has renewed an existing contract withSCS Engineers, an award-winning environmental consulting firm, to conduct Phase I and Phase II environmental site assessments (ESAs) and cleanup planning, as necessary, in West Sacramento. Phase I ESAs are standardized assessments established by the American Society for Testing and Materials to evaluate any environmental issues at sites previously used for commercial purposes, and Phase II ESAs are designed to assess whether contamination exists.
SCS was originally selected as a result of the City’s request for qualifications – a process used to determine the best-qualified contractor for a specific scope of work – and has worked with the City since 2009. The work defined under the contract will support economic development and affordable housing in the City, and will be done in compliance with Environmental Protection Agency standards.
The project director for these services will continue to be Dan Johnson, Director of Environmental Services for the Southwestern United States. He will be supported by local SCS staff specializing in risk assessment and brownfield remediation.
“SCS is a recognized expert in brownfields redevelopment and we anticipate that they will help the City with their expertise and advice,” said Aaron Laurel, Economic Development Manager for West Sacramento.
