Hartman Environmental has worked on vapor intrusion sites for periods as short as 1 day to periods lasting several years. Some of the more complex sites are listed below.  There are many other smaller sites such as service station sites, dry-cleaner sites and individual residences that also have been assessed, but are not listed here.

Continuous Monitoring – Thermal Heating Remediation site – Oakland, CA 

Date Conducted: Feb 2017 – ongoing

Client: OTIE 

Oversite Agency: EPA Region 9

Project Description:  Continuous monitoring of indoor and ambient air for vinyl chloride, TCE and PCE at 14 locations across and bordering a site undergoing thermal heating remediation.  This is the first time that vinyl chloride in air has been measured in real-time.  Data were collected prior to heating and during heating to ensure the vapor recovery system was performing adequately and make adjustments based upon the real-time data.  As of September 2017, approximately 25,000 measurements of vinyl chloride, TCE and PCE have been collected. Data are available in real-time to the client and EPA and also automatically uploaded to EPA’s Viper database software.

Continuous Monitoring – Industrial Facility, Baltimore, MD 

Date Conducted: Feb 2017 – April 2017

Client: Tetratech/CDM Smith

Oversite Agency: none

Project Description:  Continuous monitoring of room air and sump air in a basement for TCE and PCE at 15 locations with goal to understand the cause and effect of TCE concentrations in a large basement under an industrial building. The real-time data enabled immediate recognition of indoor TCE concentration variations when sumps were covered and uncovered.   Approximately 8,000 measurements of TCE and PCE were collected over a 2-month period. Data were available for viewing by the client and property owner in real-time on the web.

Continuous Monitoring – Single Family Residence – Los Angeles CA 

Date Conducted: October 2016

Client: Ramboll

Oversite Agency: CA-DTSC

Project Description:  Continuous monitoring of indoor and ambient air for TCE at 8 locations inside and outside a single family residence with goal to determine the source of TCE previously detected.  Data were collected for 30 days.  The real-time data enabled immediate recognition of indoor TCE concentration variations when air filtration units were on and off and when a sub-slab mitigation was on and off.

Continuous Monitoring – Thermal heating remediation site – New Hampshire 

Date Conducted: June 2016 to January 2017

Client: Hull & Associates 

Oversite Agency: EPA Region 1, NH-DEH

Project Description:  Continuous monitoring of indoor and ambient air for TCE and PCE at 15 locations inside an active manufacturing facility at a site undergoing thermal heating remediation.  Data were collected prior to heating and during heating to ensure the vapor recovery system was performing adequately. The system ran uninterrupted for over 7 months and approximately 30,000 measurements of TCE and PCE were collected. Data were available for viewing by the property owner, consultant and EPA in real-time on the web.  The system enabled unexpected detections of TCE to be instantly recognized and tracked down to indoor air sources.
