The Interstate Technology Regulatory Council (ITRC) will offer online, comprehensive vapor intrusion training based on recent, technical guidance from the national group.
The upcoming live webinars will cover the purpose and use of ITRC’s comprehensive web-based series of technical resources for Vapor Intrusion Mitigation.
The training consists of a series of eight modules on the sections listed below and will be presented over two, two-hour sessions:
- Jan. 13, 2022 (noon to 2 p.m. CST)
- Jan. 27, 2022 (noon to 2 p.m. CST)
Registration is available on the ITRC’s training and events webpage.
A link to the ITRC’s Technical Resources for Vapor Intrusion Mitigation is also posted on the DNR’s Vapor Intrusion Resources for Environmental Professionals webpage under the “Guidance and Forms” tab near the bottom of the page. This comprehensive 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 June 2 and June 14, 2022, and again on Nov. 3 and Nov. 15, 2022. The vapor intrusion trainings are also available on-demand.
