May 9 webinar: 'Vapor Intrusion Challenges, Technologies and Risk Management Solutions: Addressing Impacts of New Policies and Revelations'
Midwest Geosciences Group
New research sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense indicates that traditional vapor intrusion monitoring technologies may have a high probability of yielding false negative results. Recent observations show that vapor intrusion risks can be dynamic and episodic in both the vadose zone as well as indoors. As a result, leading researchers have concluded that several vapor intrusion survey and monitoring technologies currently accepted by the US EPA and other agencies can exhibit a high probability of yielding incorrect results.

Register now for this May 9 webinar, and discover the latest developments regarding this growing subject by first understanding the background of the problem, then learning about proposed approaches for more reliable characterization of risk scenarios. Find out about the current status of choices for solutions that can result in reducing potential health risks as well as alleviating legal exposure.
