History / Future


Ted Lizanec, Jr., P.G. moved to Phoenix during January 1984. Mr. Lizanec worked for the Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) (1984-1988), and two large engineering firms (1988-1991). During April 1991 he founded EESC.

From the beginning, the focus of EESC has been to provide environmental due diligence for real estate. The first EESC job was for a CLIENT that reclaimed mineralized waters from waste rock dumps in Bisbee. Since then, EESC has completed hundreds of Phase I ESAs of a wide range of property types throughout Arizona. Some of the more interesting projects included: the Reidhead lumber mill in Show Low, Resolution Trust Corporation (RTC) properties located in Tucson and Sierra Vista, a school site in Red Valley on Navajo lands north of Canyon de Chelly, a school site in Colorado City, a former crop dusting air strip near Coolidge, the former beet sugar factory in Glendale, the border town of Lukeville, a historic landfill in Tombstone, the abandoned asbestos camp of Chrysotile (northeast of Globe), part of the east-facing slope of Black Mountain over looking the Boulders Resort in Carefree, and a city block in downtown Phoenix that included a former service station operated during the Depression.

In addition to environmental due diligence, EESC also has completed numerous water resource projects to support development. Following guidelines of the Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR), EESC has completed hydrologic studies to support Assured Water Supply (inside active management areas (AMAs)), and Adequate Water Supply (outside AMAs).

Early on, Maria (Ted's wife) was responsible for EESC CLIENT development. Over time, the business grew and peaked during the mid-2000s when EESC was the primary consultant for the State of Arizona School Facilities Board (ASFB). During the last few years, EESC has downsized to adjust to the decreased activity in the Arizona real estate market.

What of the future?.......... The doors of EESC are open for service.
