Vapor intrusion is an indoor air quality condition that occurs when evaporating chemicals migrate from polluted soil and groundwater in the form of hazardous vapors into overlying buildings. In March 2008, ASTM released Standard E2600, “Standard Practice for Assessment of Vapor Intrusion into Structures on Property Involved in Real Estate Transactions”. The new standard addresses vapor intrusion (VI) arising from contaminated soil and groundwater specifically as it can impact real estate transactions. It provides guidance on the VI assessment process, from screening to mitigation and provides a process where engineers have the opportunity to assess vapor intrusion risks and protect clients from unwarranted environmental liability in real estate and other business transactions. This three hour course will prepare engineers with an overview of ASTM’s vapor intrusion standard to be familiar with environmental liabilities stemming from vapor intrusion, ASTM’s screening process, as well as, evaluation and mitigation technologies.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
