Blackstone provided pre-purchase review of environmental databases, imagery, site reconnaissance, soil and groundwater sampling, and geotechnical engineering exploration of Casey’s General Store properties ranging from active gas stations to agricultural fields. The objectives of the PPAs were to conduct site reconnaissance and data research for the site and adjacent properties to determine if any factors are present that may have a negative impact on the environmental integrity of the site; and to conduct a limited subsurface investigation (LSI) to determine if petroleum hydrocarbons have been released or spilled into the soils or groundwater underlying the site prior to the potential purchase by Casey’s General Stores. Geotechnical evaluation is also included in order to determine viability of soils for planned construction activities in order to predict project costs.
Contamination above state standards is detailed in each report, allowing Casey’s to document prior condition as well as requesting that the current owner enroll the site in state cleanup programs if necessary, prior to any purchase by Casey’s General Stores. Often, these sites require a quick turn-around time. Blackstone and GSI, our drilling and geotechnical partner, deliver our reports quickly to meet the needs of our client.
