When a property is determined to have contaminants present in excess of the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) Residential cleanup criteria, the property meets the definition of either a "Facility" or "Site" as defined by Part 201 or Part 213 of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. The preparation and disclosure of a Baseline Environmental Assessment (BEA) provides liability protection to the new owner and/or operator for cleanup of contamination caused by others and is a valuable tool in managing environmental risk.

Find out what a Baseline Environmental Assessment includes by reviewing the information sheet below. If you have questions, please contact our Due Diligence Manager, Erik Peterson. He can be reached by phone at (269) 342-1100 or email.
