Client Alert Newsletter August 2008

MGKF has acquired real-time access to more than 800 environmental databases using the EDR OnDemand™ on-line tool. The tool has proven useful in conducting due diligence in the acquisition of new properties and in corporate mergers and acquisitions, performing environmental audits, conducting background research for litigation, and increasingly for evaluating regulatory compliance and performing environmental financial reporting. Research that previously took days can now be completed in a matter of minutes!

EDR OnDemand™ provides fast and powerful research capabilities, and also simplifies the overall environmental information collection process. MGKF will utilize EDR OnDemand™ as a comprehensive source of information for our environmental research needs. Additional features include:

  • EDR VistaCheck Report: View environmental permits and violations within one half-mile of your target property on a clearly marked, interactive map report.
  • EDR Offsite Receptor Report: Manage offsite environmental risks associated with sensitive receptors such as day care centers, medical centers, nursing homes, schools, hospitals, colleges, prisons and federal lands.
  • EDR NEPAScreen Report: Manage offsite property risks associated with wilderness areas, wildlife preserves, endangered species, National Register of Historic Places properties, flood plains and wetlands.
