Program Description
Since the early 1990’s Vapor Intrusion (VI) science has continued to evolve and associated technical guidance has continued to respond and change. NJDEP was one of the first state agencies to develop guidance for VI and issued its Vapor Intrusion Technical Guidance (VITG) in 2005. The VITG, last updated in March 2013, is currently being revised once again in response to anticipated updates in State rules and regulations and guidance. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) has also published final VI Guidance documents in June 2015. At the same time, the best practices for VI pathway guidance investigations, from data collection to data interpretation, continues to advance. This technical seminar provides an update of State and Federal VI guidance changes, updates proposed changes to the NJDEP regulations and guidance and discusses some emerging tools available to practitioners.

Program Outline
• Discussion of the EPA final VI Guidance documents and other expected and forthcoming changes and implications
• Development of Indoor Air Standards and other regulatory and guidance changes in New Jersey
• Key steps to successfully investigate and mitigate site Sites where VI is the potential exposure pathway of concern
• Experiences and Case Studies on applying the NJDEP Vapor Intrusion Guidance
• Having confidence in the chemical data for decision; How do I incorporate the NJDEP Quality Guidance into my field investigations?
• The application of Professional Judgement in VI cases in New Jersey
• New and emerging tools to perform VI Investigations

Alpha Analytical assembled a panel of leading experts who will discuss the key changes and challenges in these documents and the emerging
approaches for investigations and mitigation.
