Building Design Issues
Data Analysis and Interpretation
Johnson and Ettinger Model
New Developments in Vapor Intrusion
This course provides an overview of the vapor intrusion exposure pathway including its scientific foundation, regulatory framework, and the technical aspects of investigating and remediating contaminated vapor sites. The class will cover topics such as: screening sites for potential vapor intrusion concerns, conducting field investigations, sampling techniques, data analyses, exposure point calculations, the Johnson and Ettinger predictive model, vapor intrusion risk assessment, vapor intrusion mitigation, and remediation. Participants will work through practical problems and typical site scenarios based on case studies of established vapor intrusion sites. This course provides a comprehensive introduction for those new to the field, and will also provide insights, data analysis techniques, and the latest research for more advanced participants.
*Reduced tuition is available to employees of Native American tribes, government agencies, nonprofits, students and NAEP members.
Environmental professionals seeking an improved understanding of vapor migration and intrusion with an emphasis on vapor assessment and modeling. The material is intended for practitioners working on remediation of hazardous substance release sites and brownfields redevelopment.
Continuing Education Units: 1.30 CEUs
Basic math skills and a general understanding of contaminated sites.
*Registered attendees will receive a PDF copy of course materials prior to the class. A physical book can be purchased for an additional $50 charge. To purchase, select "Physical Book" above.
About the Instructor
Mr. Haddad is a vice president for Haley and Aldrich where he is involved in vapor intrusion investigations, remediation and modeling, risk assessments, planning and strategy, development and implementation of RI/FS programs, engineering designs, hydrogeological activities, computer modeling, and operation and maintenance programs. He led an unprecedented, and perhaps largest, indoor air investigation at a Superfund site. His work established a benchmark for other EPA sites. Mr. Haddad has used his skills to allocate remedial costs among potentially responsible parties at several sites, and to allow redevelopment of several contaminated properties into commercial uses. He supervised the development of remedial design for several Superfund sites, developed and used soil, groundwater, and air dispersion model, and is an expert in hydrogeological applications. Mr. Haddad is also a faculty member of the University of California at Berkeley Extension Program where he has taught the course "Fate and Transport of Contaminants in the Environment". In addition, Mr. Haddad serves on the seminar committee of the Groundwater Resources Association where he has chaired several seminars on various topics including vapor intrusion.
