A Vapor Intrusion Primer

Given that the average adult breathes around 3,000 gallons of air each day, the inhalation of indoor air that’s been contaminated with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) is a serious cause for concern. The term for this type of contamination is vapor intrusion—a growing issue that’s becoming a larger focus of regulatory programs across the country. The levels of exposure at which the EPA or other agencies require mitigation or remediation for VOCs in indoor air are generally quite low, and the standard of care has developed so that practically all VOC-contaminated properties are now being evaluated for vapor intrusion potential. For site owners and other stakeholders, reaching closure at these sites may seem fraught with challenges, but the approach outlined in this free whitepaper can be used to make project goals achievable.

This whitepaper, along with this free webinar for those looking for a deeper dive into this topic, uses a vapor intrusion case study to illustrate the success that can be accomplished with a clear plan of action and open communication in addition to a strong remediation strategy.
