The New York City Office of Environmental Remediation released an update to its Searchable Property Environmental E-Database (SPEED 2.0) environmental mapping tool in April. SPEED is a useful due diligence tool that allows users to obtain environmental information at a city, borough, neighborhood or site level. All of SPEED’s data is regularly updated to provide an accurate snapshot for each user.
SPEED users can obtain information about properties with E-Designations, Environmental Restrictive Declarations, open and closed petroleum spills, bulk storage sites, solid waste facilities and New York State Environmental Zones. Other environmental interactive features include rezoned areas, vacant lots, floodplain and wetland boundaries.
