Change is in the air on the vapor intrusion front. Literally and figuratively. On April 16, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released a draft document, the OSWER Final Guidance For Assessing And Mitigating The Vapor Intrusion Pathway From Subsurface Sources To Indoor Air — External Review Draft for public comment. The release of EPA’s guidance comes just months before ASTM is poised to release a revised version of E 1527 that adds definitions of migrate/migration to address the vapor pathway as a potential conduit for contamination.
As attention being placed on vapor risk increases, environmental professionals need to stay abreast of the changes and their implications. With the long-awaited federal guidance now out for public comment, environmental due diligence professionals, lenders, as well as prospective purchasers of properties like drycleaners, gas stations, and other types of properties impacted by petroleum or solvents have a valuable resource for understanding VI risk, assessing it and ultimately, managing it as appropriate for their own risk tolerance. Join us at this webinar to hear the perspectives of three experts on:
• The implications of the federal vapor guidance and an insiders’ unique take on hot button issues;
• How one environmental professional talks to his clients about vapor risk and protects their liability exposure; and
• How vapor risk is being mitigated and managed in today’s deals.
