"Environmental 101: What You Need to Know (revised format - now Zoom online meeting)

Join us for another Zoom online event as we hear from Doug Brown and Rick Welsh from ASTI Environmental.

Our co-presenters will be discussing residential, agricultural, and commercial properties with a focus on environmental and ecological due diligence as well as the changes to current regulations that affect our communities. They will also present information regarding PFAS, vapor intrusion, and the differences between a Phase I, II, and III environmental assessment and what the potential impacts could be on different real estate types. We look forward to hearing from our co-presenters on these important topics and how our communities can benefit from careful analysis and review of their environmental regulations and practices.
