Description:
Vapor intrusion (VI) is the migration of vapor-forming chemicals from any subsurface source, such as contaminated soil or groundwater, into indoor air space. Contamination of soil and/or groundwater by vapor-forming chemicals such as chlorinated solvents and petroleum hydrocarbons is common at current and former industrial and commercial areas. In extreme cases, the vapors may accumulate in dwelling or occupied buildings to levels that may pose near-term safety hazards (e.g., explosion) and/or acute health effects. In buildings with lower concentrations of vapor-forming chemicals arising from VI, the chemicals may pose an unacceptable risk of health effects due to long-term (i.e. chronic) exposure, with EPA and state-defined acceptable VI indoor air concentrations often being several orders of magnitude less than comparable OSHA standards. This presentation will provide an introduction to this relevant and rapidly evolving exposure pathway, from the perspective of both safety and environmental professionals.

Presenters: George Colvin, Cox-Colvin and Associates, Inc.
