Vapor Intrusion: A Game Changer in Cleanup and Liability -- BNA Webinar

Date: Tuesday, March 08, 2011
Time: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM (ET)

Vapor intrusion has become an issue that must be considered by any party involved in the cleanup, redevelopment, or purchase of previously contaminated property. Regulators have stepped up their scrutiny of sites where, due to risk-based cleanups, contamination remains in place, even when final approval of the cleanup has been given. This has resulted in the reopening of sites that were previously cleaned up and closed, creating increased uncertainty for owners of such sites. Furthermore, vapor intrusion has spurred increased litigation with property owners claiming such vapors have impacted their health or property values. As such, vapor intrusion has become a game changer and must be addressed by a skilled team of legal and technical professionals adept at identifying and implementing proper methods for assessing and addressing potential or identified vapor intrusion risks.

This 90-minute webinar is designed to help you:

■Identify current developments related to vapor intrusion, including status updates on federal guidance and voluntary standards, such as ASTM E2600
■Learn about the latest state of the art technology and methods used to address vapor intrusion
■Gain insight about how to properly assess sites at risk for vapor intrusion issues and determine if vapor intrusion has not been evaluated properly
■Examine the legal issues related to vapor intrusion, including recent cases and the increased use of RCRA Section 7002 in litigation
■Consider how vapor intrusion issues fit into the bigger picture of all appropriate inquiries and environmental due diligence, as well as the potential for its inclusion as a component of superfund’s hazardous ranking system
■Analyze case studies that illustrate the complexity of the vapor intrusion pathway as well as cost-effective solutions to address VI problems
