Legal Liability + Obligations of Vapor Intrusion

AIPG Ohio Section 2017 Vapor Intrusion Short Course, American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) Ohio Section

On October 24-25, Scott joined other speakers to discuss number topics related to vapor intrusion (VI) as part of the American Institute of Professional Geologists (AIPG) Ohio Section’s Vapor Intrusion Short Course. VI is the migration of undesirable chemical components into indoor airspace. Vapor intrusion into buildings is one of the primary routes of human exposure to volatile organic compounds released to the subsurface. This course covered VI aspects such as the physical processes governing subsurface vapor transport and entry into buildings, VI assessment, monitoring and mitigation strategies, VI risk analysis, legal aspects, case studies and field demonstrations.
