New Guidelines on Vapor Intrusion from EPA

Centek Labs wants to always keep you informed with up to date news. Here is what is new in the vapor intrusion industry…

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released two new technical guides to support assessment and mitigation activities at sites where vapor intrusion is an actual or potential concern this month.

“These guides will promote national consistency in assessing and addressing the vapor intrusion human exposure pathway at contaminated sites to protect human health — particularly the most vulnerable,” says Mathy Stanislaus, assistant administrator for the Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response. “States, tribes and localities, in particular, will find the guides to be critical resources for identifying and considering key factors related to vapor intrusion assessments, risk management decisions and mitigation actions.”

Russ has been doing GC/GMS technology for over 30 years in the environmental, indoor air quality and BioGas industries. He holds a degree in Chemistry and has been working with many government officials such as the EPA, DOH and DOD just to name a few. He started Centek Laboratories back in 2003 with 1 GC/MS system and a hand full of canisters to test for volatile organic compounds (VOC's) utilizing EPA Method TO-15. Over the years he applied this type of chemistry to other industries. Centek Laboratories is not only doing IAQ for LEED certification but also in the vapor intrusion, industrial hygiene, BioGas and product testing fields. Russ has also been published and presented with engineering firms for vapor intrusion for the UMAS conference in Amherst, MA. He has also helped countless LEED consultants with testing and problem solving with specific IAQ issues to run a successful LEED eq. 3.2 programs. Russ has also promoted the laboratory to be everything green with the use of reusable media and minimal paperless programs. Centek Labs Air Quality Testing in Syracuse, New York
