Vapor Intrusion Mitigation Systems for Brownfield Redevelopment

Vapor Intrusion Mitigation: Our Michigan Roots

The history of Michigan is rooted in industrial manufacturing, which fueled the growth of many Michigan communities in the early 20th century. Today, former industrial sites now pose unique environmental challenges for developers seeking to restore and repurpose historical buildings and embark on new construction projects in the area.

Founded in Grand Rapids, MI, Green Earth Remediation now provides vapor intrusion mitigation services that enable developers to tackle challenges in brownfield redevelopment, ensuring safe environments for revitalized communities across various regions.

Why Is Vapor Intrusion Assessment and Mitigation System Design Required?

In the heyday of the United State’s industrial manufacturing empire, much less was known and understood about the environmental impacts of industrial runoff and dumping. Therefore, chemicals and byproducts were simply dumped into landfills and waterways, and these contaminants remain in the soil and sediment that is below various buildings and prospective construction sites.

To limit the movement of chemical vapors from contaminated soil and groundwater, through the cracks and gaps in building foundations into the air inside buildings, it is necessary to perform brownfield assessment and vapor intrusion mitigation.

Excellent experience! We needed a radon mitigation system put in and we used Schultz at both our houses. Both times they were professional, quick to schedule and very easy to work with. I was worried about the looks of it and they went above and beyond to make sure it was esthetically pleasing and what I wanted. Would highly recommend to anyone in the market for a system.

Vapor Intrusion FAQs 

Soil or air testing can reveal the presence of potential contaminants that can be mitigated with a vapor barrier in a building’s foundation. This type of testing should take place prior to new construction or renovation in designated brownfield sites where pollutants are likely to be present.
Vapor intrusion is the result of chemical spills, leaks, or dumping that was not properly cleaned up. In areas with a history of industrial production, it is common to find higher levels of contaminants in the soil and groundwater. As these chemicals evaporate, they can become vapors that are released into the air. When vapors infiltrate buildings, these odorless, invisible gasses build up in concentration and present a health hazard for the buildings’ occupants.
Exposure to various volatile organic compounds (VOCs) through vapor intrusion may increase a person’s cancer risk and cause more immediate health concerns with symptoms like nausea, drowsiness, dizziness, slowed reflexes, and headaches.
Green Earth Remediation will customize vapor mitigation solutions based on the unique needs of your property. Typically, the process will include the installation of a vapor barrier within a building’s foundation. This will prevent the intrusion of harmful, airborne compounds associated with various health risks.
Vapor intrusion control is a specialized service that requires extensive training and knowledge to provide effectively. Green Earth Remediation has assisted in the redevelopment of numerous brownfield sites with reliable solutions for vapor intrusion.
Soil testing involves taking a sample of potentially contaminated soil and sending it to a lab for assessment. The process of taking a soil sample generally takes 1-2 hours. For existing structures, a sub slab soil gas sample may need to be taken. This involves drilling small holes into a basement or slab floor to collect soil samples underneath. A lab report will be provided within a few weeks of the soil sample collection.
Air testing is typically performed over a period of 24 hours with a passive testing device that is collected in a specially designed canister and taken to a lab for testing. A lab report will take 3-5 weeks following the collection of an air sample.
Vapor mitigation will not only ensure the health and safety of a building’s future occupants, but it can limit liabilities for property owners and protect their investments. It also provides a pathway towards revitalizing urban areas that may have previously posed health risks that limited redevelopment in these areas.
