In the early months of 2021, Carlson McCain was retained by a client to conduct a Limited Environmental Compliance Assessment of a property that belonged to an entity the client recently acquired in Minnesota. The entity that was assessed manufactures equipment and provides service work to fit and improve the productivity of service trucks. The property consisted of approximately 4.48 acres of land and contained a single building, a storage area, and a parking lot.
The purpose of this assessment was to identify possible environmental compliance issues.
A professional engineer from Carlson McCain, Inc. conducted the assessment by completing the following tasks:
- Obtain and review site plans, previous environmental reports, and available documents;
- Conduct a site visit of the property with the site manager;
- Interview the site manager on-site and by telephone, obtain photographs and other available information regarding environmental permits and compliance;
- Review the online US EPA Facility Registry System (FRS) and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s ” What’s in my neighborhood” (WIMN) databases;
- Review select MPCA online databases for evidence of permitting where applicable;
- Follow up with knowledgeable representatives to further inquire about environmental permitting and compliance issues; and
- Prepare an assessment report.
Based on the assessment findings, Carlson McCain made recommendations to resolve issues found within the assessment report.
