Huron was retained by the City of Lapeer to conduct due diligence activities at an abandoned industrial property having “recognized environmental conditions” (RECs). Huron completed a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment (ESA), Phase II ESA and Baseline Environmental Assessment (BEA) at the facility. The generation of a Section 20107a Compliance Analysis (Due Care Plan) was also completed.


The former Lapeer Metal Stamping industrial property was located near the intersection of South Saginaw Street and Demille Road in the City of Lapeer, Lapeer County, Michigan.


The City of Lapeer retained Huron Consultants to provide due diligence consulting and manage environmental liability protection for the City of Lapeer associated with the acquisition of property with pre-existing subsurface contamination. Huron was retained to conduct a Phase I ESA for the former Lapeer Metal Stamping property. The Phase I ESA was conducted in accordance with All Appropriate Inquiry Rule 40 CFR 312 and ASTM E1527-05. The Phase I ESA identified several RECs related to former use, storage and handling of petroleum products and hazardous materials at the property. A Phase II ESA was performed, including the installation of soil borings and monitoring wells to facilitate soil and groundwater sample collection and laboratory analysis. The property was confirmed to be a “facility” as defined in Part 201 of MI PA 451 of 1994, as amended. A BEA was completed and submitted to the MDEQ within required time frames to provide environmental liability protection for the City of Lapeer.

Special Features

Due to timeframes associated with the property transfer, the project was completed in less than two months. The Phase I and Phase II ESA were fast-tracked in order to facilitate completion of the BEA in accordance with timeframes established in Part 201 (45 days of purchase, occupancy or foreclosure). The property was transformed into a multi-tenant commercial warehouse building with the goal of rental income pending a future sale.
