Vapor Intrusion State Table

What do I need to know about Vapor Intrusion Testing in neighboring state?

The matrix is provided to assist in giving a basic understanding for laboratory requirements for air testing to support Vapor Intrusion (VI) programs in New England and Mid-Atlantic States.

State VI guidance are accessible by web search. However, some are much more user friendly than others. Alpha Analytical maintains NELAP accreditation in states who offer certification.

Connecticut and Massachusetts have self-certification programs which requires the laboratory to complete a QA/QC evaluation which is included in the laboratory deliverable. The state reviews laboratory data deliverables in the process of reviewing site reports submissions.

A number of states do not offer state Certification/Accreditation for air methods.  Alpha Analytical is your partner for Air and Vapor Intrusion testing in which ever state your project is located.
