September 2016 Client Alert

On August 24, Ohio EPA released new guidance that incorporates an unprecedented approach to vapor intrusion. Under the new guidance, Recommendations Regarding Response Action Levels and Timeframes for Common Contaminants of Concern at Vapor Intrusion Sites in Ohio, the Agency is for the first time demanding immediate action when contaminant levels exceed certain established "trigger" levels. In the case of one particular contaminant – trichloroethylene (TCE) – the Agency expects action within days if the associated trigger levels are exceeded. The guidance has major implications for businesses, property owners, consultants and attorneys. Read the Client Alert here.
