Vapor Intrusion

Date & Time

Next offering tentatively planned for April 2017. Registration will open when course date is confirmed.


Vapor intrusion (VI) has received increased attention over the last decade as a potential exposure pathway of concern in the investigation and remediation of contaminated sites. Vapors, typically from volatile organic compounds related to spills or releases into the environment, may migrate in the subsurface and along preferential pathways (such as underground utility lines) and potentially impact indoor air quality. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP's) Vapor Intrusion Technical (VIT) Guidance document provides assistance in the evaluation of this potential exposure pathway and takes the investigator through the various stages of receptor evaluation, VI investigation, mitigation, monitoring, and closure.

In this one-day seminar, instructors will present the State's approach to Vapor Intrusion as outlined in the VIT Guidance document and discuss upcoming changes being made to the VIT Guidance.

Topics to be Covered:

  • Technical Guidance Overview and What's Changing
  • VI Decision Framework and Receptor Evaluation
  • VI Investigative Approaches
  • Screening Levels, Site-Specific Options, and Status of the Proposed Indoor Air Remediation Standards
  • Data Evaluation and Petroleum Hydrocarbons
  • The Role of Variances & Professional Judgment
  • VCs and IECs
  • Mitigation Measures
  • Operation and Maintenance / Termination
