Presentation notes


Since May 2019, the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC) Vapor Intrusion Mitigation Training (VIMT) Team has been working on materials and training to address needs of regulatory program personnel regarding sites with known or potential VI impacts. This information is also useful to practitioners (i.e., environmental consultants or engineers), responsible parties, public and tribal stakeholders, and attorneys that are involved with buildings that require mitigation to address vapor intrusion. The VIMT team is comprised of more than 230 professionals from both the public and private sectors, and is scheduled to publish 10 fact sheets, 16 technology information sheets, and 4 checklists in late December 2020.

This presentation provides an overview on the contents and an introduction on how to access and use the work products produced by the VIMT Team.  The need for training materials focused on vapor intrusion mitigation were developed based on feedback received following publication of ITRC’s 2007 Vapor Intrusion Pathway and 2014 Petroleum Vapor Intrusion guidance documents.  We look forward to providing this overview and engaging in discussion, questions, and answers with the members of the Colorado Environmental Management Society.

Steve Brauner, Ph.D., PE thrives on using his 20+ years of experience to design and implement approaches that achieve cost-effective, optimized remediation of contaminated air, soil, and groundwater. Dr. Brauner has managed multidisciplinary technical teams and led regulatory negotiations under CERCLA, RCRA, and state jurisdiction to achieve complete or partial shutdown of active remediation systems that were no longer effective at achieving remediation endpoints. He has designed and implemented innovative approaches that quantifiably improved the performance of existing remedies. Since May 2019, he has served as a Program Co-Advisor for the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC) Vapor Intrusion Mitigation Training (VIMT) Team.  Dr. Brauner is a Principal Engineer and Colorado Market Manager for Environmental Works, Inc. (EWI).  He earned his Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Lehigh University and both his Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy from Virginia Tech.

Matt Williams is a Vapor Intrusion Specialist for the development and implementation of methods used to investigate and assess vapor intrusion issues for the Remediation and Redevelopment Division of the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE). He is a Geologist that more than 18 years of experience in both the public and private sectors working on a wide variety of projects across the United States.  He has drafted several guidance documents and standard operating procedures for EGLE, and has given numerous training seminars and talks on soil gas methods and vapor intrusion for stakeholder groups and consultants. He co-led ITRC 2-day classroom training on Petroleum Vapor Intrusion and is a trainer in both the 2-day classroom and Internet-based training. More recently, he has served as a Team Leader for ITRC Vapor Intrusion Mitigation Training (VIMT) Team. Mr. Williams earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology from Central Michigan University in 1993.
