Vapor Intrusion in Ohio: What You Need to Know

Date and Time:
7/25/2018 at 3:00 PM, Duration: 45 Minutes


Vapor intrusion is a relatively new environmental field. It is also the most common environmental impediment to site closure and property transaction in the marketplace today. Regulatory guidance on vapor intrusion has been challenging to develop and even more challenging to implement. There are legal and technical concerns that commonly complicate, impede or prevent closure. The potential for client liability is significant throughout both the investigation and remedial action phases. The occupants of structures with contaminant exposure from vapor intrusion are just now beginning to realize the need to better understand the significance of potential health impacts and the potential for liability claims.

This presentation will provide an overview of vapor intrusion and available Ohio guidance, followed by discussion of common issues and concerns for the general public, site reviewers and attorneys. Common issues and concerns will include: ways to reduce client liability, investigation approaches, and how to address confounding issues such as, indoor air background. The presentation will also detail emerging policy concerns such as, the short term trichloroethene (TCE) developmental risks of fetal heart malformations, the significance of radon risk versus chemical vapor intrusion risk, and the potential re-opening of closed Ohio Voluntary Action Program (VAP) Sites with a Covenant Not to Sue (CNS).
