TOWARD QUANTIFYING THE RISK OF VOC EXPOSURE VIA VAPOR INTRUSION IN POST-INDUSTRIAL CITIES
In Michigan, recent emphasis has been placed on the issue of vapor intrusion of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into buildings. At the basic level, VOCs have the ability to volatilize from shallow groundwater and contaminated soil into the soil gas from where they can move into buildings. Importantly, most people in the U.S. spend at least 90% of their time indoors. Despite the importance of VOC vapor intrusion, little is known in part because of the difficulty in measuring and analyzing the type of data necessary to assess this exposure pathway.
