On November 5, the Maine Indoor Air Quality Council (MIAQC) and Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) will jointly host a Vapor Intrusion and Indoor Air Quality seminar.
Vapor intrusion is the process by which pollutants present in the soil and water can enter a building. A general knowledge of vapor intrusion and its potential impact on the indoor air quality in a building is essential for anyone involved in site development, design and management of construction projects for new and existing buildings, real property transfers, and management of existing facilities. The U.S. EPA and the Maine Department of Environmental Protection have issued rigorous “guidance” limits for the chemicals associated with vapor intrusion. This program will provide attendees with an introduction and overview of vapor intrusion concepts and processes, and provide a summary of advanced approaches and protocols used for vapor intrusion investigations and data assessment to support informed decision-making.
Make plans to join MIAQC & MEREDA for breakfast from 7:00 – 9:00 AM at the Holiday Inn By the Bay in Portland on November 5 to learn more about how vapor intrusion affects your building or your next project.
