Is this even a REC?

Is a gas station always a REC?

Phase I Site Assessments
measure environmental risk associated with a property.

This risk is in the form of Recognized Environmental Conditions (RECs).

Let's walk through two scenarios of a subject property whose neighbor is a gas station...
#1 - NFA:

A gas station released petroleum into the environment.

However, the petroleum was cleaned up.

The gas station was notified by regulators that No Further Action will be required.


Gas stations can be RECs, but a release may not affect neighbors, onsite operations, nor warrant further investigation.
#2 - High Risk:

A gas station next door has a petroleum release; the extent of the contamination is unknown.

Regulators are aware of the release, but the owner has not taken remedial action.

Worst case scenario: the subject property is heavily contaminated.


Remediation can cost millions of dollars and several years to complete.
Regardless of scenario, it's a smart idea to consult an environmental professional.

Sierra Piedmont provides clear understanding of the risks associated with gas stations.

We're always here to determine if RECs exist.
