A nationwide coffee chain was considering purchase of a former gasoline service station parcel in El Monte, California, for redevelopment into a retail coffee house. The Reynolds Group was contracted to perform a Phase I ESA for the property to determine if any issues of environmental concern existed on or near the property. Although the owner of the property at that time vowed having received regulatory closure following leaking underground storage tanks (USTs) and subsequent remediation at the former gas station, historical research by The Reynolds Group uncovered that the leaking UST case remained open with the regulatory agency. The real estate transaction was suspended, pending resolution of the open UST case at the property.
