The prospective purchaser engaged Phase to oversee the necessary environmental investigation and response actions through the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Voluntary Cleanup Program (VCP). Phase submitted documentation to the TCEQ to enter the VCP and conducted required additional investigation to delineate and characterize the impacted groundwater beneath the subject property. The TCEQ approved Phase’s request to classify the underlying groundwater as a non-potable groundwater resource (Class 3 Groundwater). The TCEQ issued a VCP Certificate of Completion (COC) for the subject property based on the lack of identified exposure pathways and groundwater classification. The closure was unconditional and did not require any future land use restrictions or engineering controls to be maintained; therefore, the anticipated future residential redevelopment was determined to be practical.
The subject property was redeveloped as the Kensington Green subdivision with 36 residences that were built between 2016 and 2019.
