Vacant Industrial Land Plot, Bien Hoa, Dong Nai, Vietnam
SLP Environmental was appointed by a multi-national chemical company to conduct and report a Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment for a vacant land plot situated in the AMATA Industrial Park, Bien Hoa, Vietnam as part of the overall transaction due diligence process. The client was considering the acquisition of the property and the primary objective of the study was to determine if soil and groundwater contamination was potentially present at the subject property as a consequence of historic and current activities on and or within the environs of the subject property.
The study was conducted and reported in accordance with the practice presented in ASTM E1527-13 and the scope of works comprised of a site and environs reconnaissance, interviews with key informants, consultations with the property owners and neighboring land users. Desk studies were also undertaken to determine the land use history of the area and the physical and natural environmental setting.
The client also requested that certain Non ASTM scope aspects be included in the study and these comprised of an initial assessment regarding the availability of utilities, solid waste and wastewater disposal options for the planned development as well as flood and ground subsidence risks. The available unexploded ordnance (UXO) records for the locale were also reviewed.
These studies culminated in the determination of the environmental sensitivity of the project site area, the development of a preliminary conceptual site model (CSM) for the property and a determination as to whether any Recognised Environmental Conditions and/or De Minimis conditions were associated with the subject property.
