Protecting off-site receptor from on-site contamination has always been one of the responsibilities of Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs). Although LSRPs are very good at evaluating the potential pathways to receptors from the various contaminated media—including via soil, groundwater, and soil gas (vapor)—there has been an increased focus on protecting off-site receptors from airborne exposure routes while sites are undergoing remediation.
In fact, in December 2023, the NJDEP released a new technical guidance document on Perimeter Air Monitoring. This guidance applies to sites undergoing remediation under the NJDEP’s Contaminated Site Remediation & Redevelopment Program (CSRRP).
Are you unsure how to develop and implement an effective perimeter air monitoring (PAM) program for your site remediation projects? Do you understand action levels and health-based threshold values? Is selecting, operating, and maintaining proper air monitoring equipment a mystery? Don’t fret! Come learn these and other vital PAM fundamentals in this new class!
This class will help you by providing an overview of the fundamentals and key components of an effective perimeter air monitoring program, as defined in the new NJDEP guidance document, including:
- Developing PAM objectives
- Development of a conceptual site model inclusive of ambient air
- Understanding action levels & health-based threshold values
- Selecting appropriate monitoring equipment and methods
- Selecting effective monitoring locations & frequency
- Operation and maintenance of air monitoring equipment
- Documentation and reporting
We will also cover other related topics, including:
- Legal considerations of collecting ambient air data
- Odor issues
Benefits of Attending
By attending this course, you will:
- Hear and learn from experienced practitioners.
- Hear directly from the NJDEP, who will discuss the new guidance document.
- See demonstrations of actual equipment (field demo)
- Learn how to plan and execute a well-thought-out PAM program that employs sound and reasonable components.
- Know how to reduce the overall risk to stakeholders during remediation and be protective to human health and the environment.
- Hear from legal and odor experts about how those elements should be considered.
Who Should Attend?
The principles covered will help LSRPs and other remediation practitioners reduce the overall risk to stakeholders during remediation and be protective to human health and the environment—regardless of the regulations.
