Notice of Proposed Program Policy

Evaluating the Potential for Indoor Air Impacts at Past, Current, and Future Sites

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) is making available for public comment a proposed program policy that outlines the Departmentís strategy for evaluating the potential for vapor intrusion at sites where remedial decisions have already been made, sites that are currently being investigated and sites which will be reviewed by the Department in the future. The proposed policy states that vapor intrusion will be evaluated at every site that is currently being reviewed by NYSDEC as well as sites that will be reviewed in the future. For sites where remedial decisions have already been made, the strategy details a stepwise approach which prioritizes sites based on the greatest potential for vapor intrusion and will result in evaluation of the sites with the greatest potential first.

Copies of the draft policy are available in the whatís new section of the Division of Environmental Remediationís web page at www.dec.state.ny.us/website/der or by contacting Mr. Jim Harrington, Training and Technical Support Section, Division of Environmental Remediation, NYSDEC, 11th Floor, 625 Broadway, Albany, New York 12233-7020 by mail, jbharrin@gw.dec.state.ny.us by email or 518- 402- 9755 by telephone. Written comments on the draft document are welcome and should be sent to Mr. Harrington within 30 days after this publication date. All written comments will be considered and a responsiveness summary will be available when the policy is finalized.
