Gelvin Ranch Phase 1 Environmental Assessment
- Client: The Nature Conservancy, Yuma County, Colorado
- Date: October 2010 to November 2010
- Project Type: Environmental Compliance
- Info: Gelvin Ranch is a 920-acre working ranch located in eastern Yuma County, Colorado. The landowner initiated a Phase I Environmental Assessment because they transferred developmental rights to The Nature Conservancy through a conservation easement.
Based on the results of the Phase I Environmental Site Assessment investigation, we determined the Gelvin Ranch property was free of environmental hazards and contamination. We observed a trash dump near the western property boundary in an eroded drainage ditch. However, we examined the site and believed to be de minimus, as containers were empty and evidence of release, such as distressed vegetation and odors were not observed.
Blue Mountain consulted with Environmental Data Resources Inc. of Milford, Conn., to obtain available environmental records data to help identify recognizable environmental conditions on the surrounding the property.
