Environmental Data Bases for Real Estate Due diligence – The ENVIROSTOR

Aug 17, 2020

Environmental Enlightenment #314

In a previous Environmental Enlightenment, we presented the GeoTracker, a data-packed site that provides handy information on environmental conditions for sites of interest in California. (Ref. https://amiadini.com/one-useful-environmental-database/)

With this issue, we present its sister site, the ENVIROSTOR

Real-estate brokers, attorneys and investors can glide through these sites fast to identify items of interest about properties in California.

The ENVIROSTOR is managed by the Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), a sub-agency of Cal-EPA: https://dtsc.ca.gov/

We are interested in a transaction with a property in Santa Monica around Olympic Blvd and Centinela Ave.

We enter “Olympic Blvd & Centinela Avenue in the above search window, and the map below opens up:

We now move the cursor to any of the indicated sites that might be of interest to us in their potential to impact our property of interest.

We click on the link and take it from there to explore that site.

And we thus proceed to explore other nearby sites of interest.

Call me for any site of interest and I shall walk you through the entire search process.

Better yet, we can do this quick search for you free of charge.
