To develop a strong working knowledge of vapour intrusion modeling and how to apply the models on a site by site basis.
- Course Outline
Brownfield redevelopment and remediation is frequently based around risk based assessment to derive suitable standards upon which to prioritize clean-up efforts and to assist in providing a safe site for human use, whether for industrial, commercial, residential or recreational use. Vapour intrusion into buildings has been, and continues to be a sensitive exposure pathway for soil and groundwater contaminants to enter a building and pose potential harm to the users.
There are several approaches available for the modeling of vapour intrusion into buildings, both in Canada, the US and elsewhere. In this course, you will learn the basis behind vapour intrusion assessment, applicable site investigation and data collection requirements, how to use certain models, model sensitivities and the actual and perceived risks associated with vapours.
Policy/Background Necessitating Vapour Intrusion Risk Assessment
• Examples and origins of the practice e.g superfund, recent
research in Canada
• Problems and awareness of the issue
• Approaches in different provinces/regions/federal level
Site Investigation And Vapour Intrusion
• The conceptual model
• Site characterization
• On-site testing and monitoring
• Real v modeled data
• Derivation of attenuation factors
Practical Session – Attenuation Factors And Conceptual Models
Specific Chemical Issues
• Chlorinated solvents and biotransformation
• Petroleum hydrocarbons
Modelling Risks In Canada And Elsewhere
Practical Session – Vapour Intrusion Models
Before and after construction
Risk Management And Brownfield Redevelopment
Perceived v Actual risks
Practical Sessions – Development Of Risk Management Plan
After participating in this course, you will be able to
develop a conceptual idea of the potential for vapour intrusion into a building to occur,
to identify the key receptors of concern
better evaluate the true risks to a building and its occupants from volatile contaminants in the subsurface
assess whether more information is needed to better quantify a vapour intrusion risk and to determine if the site characterization completed is appropriate
