New EPA Environmental Site Assessment Standards Not Yet in Effect

on Monday, 2 December 2013 in Dirt Alert: David C. Levy, Editor

As we reported in an October 15, 2013, Dirt Alert Article, the United States Environmental Protection Agency adopted a proposed Amendment to Standards and Practices for All Appropriate Inquiries to incorporate ASTM International’s E1527-13 “Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site Assessment Process.” The period to submit adverse comments to the proposed rule expired. However, the Environmental Protection Agency received comments prior to the tender date. Therefore, the Environmental Protection Agency has withdrawn the proposed rule and will reissue after amending it.
