Todd Creamer and Eric Lovenduski to Present on Vapor Intrusion in Massachusetts

Todd Creamer, P.G. (Portsmouth) and Eric Lovenduski (Albany) accepted invitations to be instructors for a Continuing Education Seminar on vapor intrusion sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) and the Licensed Site Professional Association (LSPA) of Massachusetts.

The popular seminar, entitled “The Vapor Intrusion Issue and What We Have Learned: An Updated Perspective on Investigating the Pathway, Sampling Techniques and Effective Mitigation Measures,” focuses on recent developments in investigating the vapor intrusion pathway, the appropriate sampling techniques, and effective mitigation measures to address the pathway.

Todd has contributed significantly to the discussion on vapor intrusion in Massachusetts and nationally through participation in applied research on cutting-edge data acquisition and data analysis methods, and through technical presentations to agencies and in public forums.

Eric has collected thousands of soil vapor samples and has been involved with the mitigation of dozens of large commercial structures.  He is a member of the AARST Radon Mitigation Standard work group and the ASTM E-2600 Vapor Encroachment Committee. He attended the ITRC Vapor Intrusion Classroom Training and has led the design team for several state-of-the-art aerated floor vapor mitigation projects. Additionally, Eric holds a National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) radon mitigation certification.

Todd’s and Eric’s co-presenters will be Gerard Martin of the MassDEP’s Bureau of Waste Site Cleanup in their Southeast Regional Office and Andy Rezendes of Alpha Analytical Laboratories of Westborough, Massachusetts.

Registration for the seminar will open on Tuesday, March 3. It will be held twice this spring with the first on Wednesday, April 15 at the Holiday Inn in Taunton, Massachusetts, and again on Thursday, May 14 at the Holiday Inn in Boxborough, Massachusetts. It will also be offered again twice in the Fall of 2015.

The LSPA, founded in 1993, is a professional association of 850 members, about half of whom are Licensed Site Professionals (LSPs). The LSPA supports an aggressive agenda that protects the health and safety of Massachusetts' citizens while expediting the cleanup and reuse of properties contaminated with hazardous waste.  LSPs have brought over 30,000 contaminated properties into regulatory compliance since 1993.
