Final Technical Guidance Document: Substantive Revision

DEP ID: 261-0300-101. Title: Land Recycling Program Technical Guidance Manual for Vapor Intrusion into Buildings from Groundwater and Soil under Act 2. Description: The Land Recycling Program Vapor Intrusion (VI) Guidance has been substantially revised to update scientific deficiencies of the current guidance. Screening values and the way they are calculated have been updated and there are multiple clarifications that have been made to language, definitions and procedures. Revising the VI guidance helps avoid confusion for remediators and regional office staff about how to address the VI pathway under the Statewide health standard and the site-specific standard. The Department solicited comments on the draft VI guidance for 30 days, beginning on July 25, 2015. During the comment period, 97 comments were received from 8 different organizations. The comment and response document accompanies the final VI guidance document and is available for public viewing on the Department's web site as previously mentioned.

Contact: Questions regarding this technical guidance document should be directed to Carolyn Fair, Land Recycling Program, (717) 425-7514 or
