Environmental Assessments

August Mack was hired by a national firm to perform environmental assessments for their acquisition of 17-acres of land the near eastside of Indianapolis.

  • A  site, that is currently being redeveloped into a modern, mixed-use residential and retail complex.

August Mack’s involvement in these historic neighborhoods over the past six years has included:

  • Completion of over 25 Phase I Environmental Site Assessments (ESAs) that covered over 60 parcels and over 25 acres of land.
  • Completion of area-wide and site-specific Phase II ESAs and delineation. These activities involved drilling over 80 soil borings and installing more than 20 temporary groundwater wells.
  • Completion of pre-demolition asbestos surveys.
  • Obtaining Brownfields Comfort Letters.
