How will California’s New Vapor Intrusion Guidance Affect Your Business?

In February of this year, CAL EPA, the Water Boards, and DTSC published proposed supplemental guidance for evaluating soil “vapor intrusion” (VI) for screening buildings for VI and possible health risk.  This guidance, if adopted, has the potential to annually impact thousands of real estate projects and transactions in California. 

By some estimates, over 50% of properties in urban infill locations including commercial/retail, industrial and land being converted to residential and commercial use, may be affected through the application of conservative screening and mitigation standards resulting in increased costs, schedule impacts, sites not being pursued as potential development sites, and  the threat of law suits being filed for personal or property damages. Join us on May 28th at 1:30 pm for Procopio's Environmental Breakfast Club complimentary webinar which will provide an overview of:

  • Current practices and guidance in VI;
  • The changes proposed by the new guidance (including the attenuation factors);
  • How the revised guidance, if adopted, could impact you and result in significant changes for Phase II investigations and remediation, including re-opening previously “closed” sites;
  • How lenders and insurance carriers will respond to VI issues in debt placements
  • The risk of personal injury or harm to property value claims and how to manage those risks; and
  • Strategies to respond to VI and the proposed guidance

This webinar is intended for:

  • Real estate lenders, investors and developers
  • Contractors
  • Real estate and insurance brokers
  • Industrial, commercial, and residential property owners/managers and tenants
