Vapor Intrusion: The current and future status. Vapor instrusion has become a significant focus of many subsurface investigations and a driver in remediation projects. Commercial, industrial and residential structures are now routinely sampled for “vapors.” Learn about IDEM’s recent developments in vapor intrusion data interpretation and regulation. This issue may affect property values and generate additional third-party claims and personal injury cases.

Bona Fide Prospective Purchaser: The client, the attorney and the environmental consultant. The seminar takes a look at a recent project as an illustration of the significant roles the attorney and environmental consultant play in achieving the client’s goal. To properly implement this key mechanism for protection against environmental liability, it is vital to understand the important function of the attorney and environmental consultant.

Remediation Closure Guide/Remediation Program Guide: Latest look at the status and contents of these evolving guidance documents. These documents are proposed to replace the existing IDEM Risk Integrated System of Closure program. The increased use of HB1162 and risk-based closure approaches highlight the need for using Conceptual Site Models in evaluating exposure risks.
