The Interstate Technology Regulatory Council (ITRC) will soon offer a new, online training series based on recent, comprehensive vapor intrusion technical guidance from the national group.
The series, to be held on June 1 and June 15, will cover the purpose and use of the December 2020 comprehensive web-based series of technical resources for Vapor Intrusion Mitigation.
Staff from the Remediation and Redevelopment Program participated in the development of both the technical resources and training.
The training consists of a series of eight modules on the sections listed below and will be presented over two, two-hour sessions:
- June 1, 2021 (noon to 2 p.m. CST)
- June 15, 2021 (noon to 2 p.m. CST)
Environmental professionals are encouraged to register and participate using the webpage here.
A link to the ITRC’s web-based document is posted on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) Vapor Intrusion Resources for Environmental Professionals website under the “Guidance and Forms” tab. This document includes an interactive directory that includes 10 fact sheets, 16 technology information sheets and four checklists, covering the following topics specific to vapor intrusion mitigation:
- Conceptual site model
- Public outreach
- Rapid response and ventilation (for acute risk)
- Active mitigation
- Passive mitigation
- Remediation and institutional controls
- Design considerations
- Post installation considerations
- Operation, maintenance and monitoring/exit strategy
- Emerging technology
While the documents are designed to assist state regulators, they also serve to raise awareness with environmental consultants and other industry professionals.
The online sessions will be repeated on September 14 and 28. Visit ITRC’s website for more information or to register for the June webinars.
Site-specific questions regarding vapor intrusion in Wisconsin should be directed to the assigned DNR Project Manager. General questions can be directed to the contacts listed on the DNR’s Vapor Intrusion Resources for Environmental Professionals website.
