The Phase I shall contain one of the following recommendations:

(a) No action is required for the Proposed School Site. A Phase I or Phase I Addendum that contains data from investigation of lead in soil from lead-based paint, PCBs in soil from electrical transformers, or OCPs in soil from termiticide application may recommend that no further site investigation is required if the Phase I and/or Phase I Addendum demonstrate that lead, PCB and/or OCP concentrations in soils do not exceed concentrations determined by the Department on a case-by-case basis to be protective of human health and the environment.

(b) Investigation of lead in soil from lead-based paint and/or PCBs in soil from electrical transformers is recommended but has not yet been completed. Results of this investigation will be submitted to the Department as a Phase I Addendum.

(c) A Preliminary Endangerment Assessment is required, including sampling to determine one or more of the following:

(1) If a release of hazardous material has occurred and, if so, the extent of the release.
