Vapor Investigation

Vapor intrusion is the presence of potentially toxic vapors in a structure that arise from contaminated groundwater or soil below (or near) a building. It can lead to health problems as well as legal exposure. If you are a real estate developer and haven’t yet dealt with vapor intrusion, chances are you will soon, particularly at properties in urban areas. In recent years, evolution of the environmental due diligence process and requirements of savvy lenders have resulted in a greater awareness of the potential for vapor intrusion, and in some instances the need for mitigation.
