Paul Nicholson to Deliver Vapour Intrusion Investigations and Mitigation Webinar

Paul Nicholson, P.Eng (Ontario) will lead a webinar entitled "Optimization of Vapour Intrusion Investigations and Mitigation" organized by the Australian Land & Groundwater Association on at 11:00 a.m. on October 10, 2019.

Paul is a Senior Engineer at Geosyntec with 15 years of experience in environmental consulting. His practice focuses on assessing and mitigating human health risks associated with sub-surface vapour intrusion, including developing many large scale vapour intrusion assessment programs for properties with as many as a 1,000 buildings and prioritizing properties based on a building specific conceptual site model using historical soil and groundwater information.

ALGA's mission is to promote the protection, restoration and management of land and groundwater for the benefit of human health and the broader environment across Australasia. ALGA pursues this mission through facilitating and encouraging the expression and interchange of ideas, opinions and knowledge between stakeholders and other persons involved in contaminated land and groundwater; improving the capacity, knowledge and skills of persons working in the fields of contaminated land and groundwater industry; fostering honesty, integrity, rational thinking and professionalism in persons involved in the fields of contaminated land and groundwater; encouraging and supporting research and development of science and engineering that will advance the assessment, sustainable management and remediation of contaminated land and groundwater; and doing anything ancillary to the objectives.


Optimization of Vapour Intrusion Investigations and Mitigation
Speaker: Paul Nicholson
Time: 11:00-12:00 p.m. (ADST) on Oct. 10, 2019
This session will explore different conceptual site models for vapour intrusion and various techniques for assessment of the VI pathway.  We will review challenges with VI assessment such as spatial and temporal variability and background sources and how to overcome these challenges. In addition, various mitigation techniques will be discussed and how the conceptual site model influences the type and size of the mitigation system required.
