Dr. Angela Liang Cutting to Present a GRACast Webinar June 11

Mitigating Vapors & Minimizing Legal Liabilities from Vapor Intrusion
GRACast Webinar – Wed., June 11 – 12:00-1:30pm Pacific Daylight Time (GMT-07:00)

Vapor intrusion (VI) evaluation, mitigation, regulatory negotiations and legal perspectives are constantly evolving. On Wednesday, June 11 (12:00-1:30pm PDT) Ms. Karen Nardi, Arnold and Porter, LLP and Dr. Angela Liang Cutting, PhD, PE, Roux Associates, Inc. will be presenting:

Mitigating Vapors & Minimizing Legal Liabilities from Vapor Intrusion

This GRACast will focus on the legal and engineering mitigation issues involved with VI from contaminated groundwater sites. See below for some of the discussions included in the 90-minute webinar.

Legal:

Types of liabilities that are associated with vapor intrusion into indoor air in buildings, including obligation for groundwater cleanup, mitigation of indoor air conditions, and third party toxic tort type claims.
The differing interests of potentially responsible parties (PRPs), landlords, tenants, employers and building occupants.
A case study that focuses on recent developments in the Silicon Valley where EPA Region 9 has re-opened many of the federal Superfund sites and asked for a re-evaluation of vapor intrusion issues.
Some of the interesting policy and scientific questions involved in setting health-based standards for indoor air.
Kinds of advice lawyers can provide to clients in this rapidly evolving area of law, science and policy.
Engineering:

The approach relating to VI mitigation measures for a residential development in Silicon Valley.
How to succeed in implementing cost-effective vapor mitigation by communicating effectively across multiple disciplines regarding the VI mitigation system design and incorporating the system into the Building Plan and Schedule.
The different components of the mitigation system, including the:
Vapor Barrier;
Passive Sub-Slab Depressurization System;
Active Sub-Slab Vapor Extraction System; and
Sub-Slab Vapor Monitoring System.

The legal/regulatory setting; operation, maintenance, and monitoring of the system.
