Zone 4

Phase I Summary

Recognized Environmental Concerns were identified on this site. They were due to the following reasons: Hawkeye Ready Mix using the SW portion of the property as a truck washout area with unknown dumping and disposal practices, a data gap from no access to the fenced in NW portion of the property that is leased by MidAmerican Energy, unknown soucrce and contents of fill material brought on-site from the 1960s to the 1990s, the historical and present general industrial use (electrical substation, ready mix plant and trucking facility) of the surrounding properties and the fact that two adjacent properties have documented VOC and petroleum contamination in groundwater.

Phase II Summary

This Phase II ESA produced data of a quality sufficient to make the project decisions set forth in the approved QAPP. No conditions of imminent threat or public hazard from hazardous substances or petroleum were identified. The RECs identified in the Phase I ESA were realized as measurable chemical impacts to this site. Chemical impacts were discovered in the soil, but not at levels high enough to impede redevelopment than would normally be exercised in redeveloping the property for non-residential use. Chemical impacts were also discovered in the groundwater. However, these conditions appear to pose no reasonable impediment for redevelopment as long as groundwater is not used as drinking water, which would be in violation of City Ordinance No. 90.07. This Phase II ESA supports the City's due diligence efforts to avail themselves of the Brownfields liability defenses for a bona fide prospective purchaser as set forth in the Small Business Liability Relief and Brownfields Revitalization Act of 2002.
