Site Online Environmental Screen (SOLES) Report

Site Online Environmental Screen (SOLES) Report

For real estate transactions, EWMA’s Site Online Environmental Screen (SOLES) Report offers a quick and inexpensive way to uncover pertinent property information based on our review of known, publicly-available environmental databases and information sources. SOLES provides “on the go” information to assist our clients in making sound business decisions regarding property acquisitions. SOLES also saves time and money by evaluating potential known environmental risks on a property before the start of the due diligence process.

We screen State and Federal databases for information regarding a property. The results of our evaluation are published in a SOLES Report, which features a summary of our findings, a detailed map of the area in which the property is located (including environmentally impacted sites and features of concern) and data tables from database searches to facilitate a quick review. EWMA can typically prepare a SOLES Report in one business day. The SOLES Report is especially suited for multiple-property portfolio transactions, where properties must be screened and provided an environmental risk assessment.

  • SRRA 2.0 Ushers In New Changes For Remediation in NJ

    What’s changed?

    Passed in 2009, the Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) brought major changes to how New Jersey’s contaminated properties are cleaned up and deemed fit for future development. Now, the legislation has received its first overhaul, with the recent signing of S-3862/A-5293, known colloquially as “SRRA 2.0.” This legislation revisits many of the required processes of identifying, reporting, remediating, and maintaining cleaned sites, working out multiple kinks that have been grappled with in New Jersey’s Site Remediation Program since the legislation was enacted.
