In this webinar were pleased to have as a special guest speaker Tom Hatton, CEO of Clean Vapor LLC. His presentation discussed subjective standards and the long-term liability of vapor intrusion. He was joined by Jordan Knight, Central Region Manager of Land Science, who shared advanced vapor mitigation barrier technologies that can be incorporated into vapor mitigation system (VMS) designs to minimize the long-term liability that often comes with contaminated site redevelopment.
Topics covered in this free webinar:
- The evolution of the standards process and solutions toward harmonizing best practices in VMS design
- Best technical merits of state guidance documents as well as integrating standardized practices
- How adopting a framework of best design, mitigation and operation maintenance & monitoring (OM&M) practices could promote transparency in performance, documentation, energy efficiency, and limit health and long-term liability risks
- The industry’s most protective vapor barriers featuring metallized films and nitrile-advanced asphalt latex
It has been thirty-five years since the federal Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) first Vapor Intrusion (VI) Site in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Since then many Radon and Vapor Intrusion Guidance documents have emerged. Although voluminous, these documents typically have only a few pages on mitigation and even less on Extended Stewardship and structuring an effective OM&M plans. The standards that exist are highly proscriptive for sampling but put little emphasis on standards for vapor intrusion mitigation, VMS design and even less on OM&M programs – this can be said for new construction and existing building mitigation. As a result of this metamorphosis, the vapor intrusion industry is lagging behind and using a patchwork of unharmonized regulatory documents, and site-specific agreements. The disparity between states and complete absence of standards in other states has created significant undefined long-term liability for building owners, responsible parties and insurance carriers who are seeking to define those liabilities.
