Leading environmental information provider offers real estate community

tools to help screen properties for harmful vapor intrusion

MILFORD, Conn., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Environmental Data Resources, Inc. (EDR), the leading U.S. provider of environmental risk information services and solutions, today announced the results of a poll indicating a high level of awareness of the health, investment and liability risks associated with vapor intrusion. The poll also showed that environmental professionals (EPs), property buyers and lenders are eager to apply the recently approved ASTM standard practice for vapor intrusion assessment to address these concerns.

More than 500 EPs from environmental consulting and engineering firms across the U.S. participated in the poll. Of these, 95.2 percent stated that they plan to speak with their customers (who include property buyers, owners, and commercial lenders) about vapor intrusion and how best to manage the risk that it presents. Moreover, more than half of EPs (51.5 percent) indicated that their customers had already asked them about vapor intrusion. Fewer than one in three respondents (29.5 percent) stated that their firm already had an internal training program on vapor intrusion.

Vapor intrusion is an indoor air quality hazard that has emerged as a significant environmental and health issue in recent years. It occurs when rapidly evaporating (volatile) chemicals migrate from polluted soil and groundwater in the form of vapors into overlying buildings. Thousands of properties nationwide are potentially at risk for vapor intrusion. Potential sources of vapor intrusion include current or former industrial facilities, gas stations, and drycleaners.

Since the approval of the ASTM vapor intrusion standard on March 1, 2008, EDR has been providing resources to help EPs apply the new standard. In addition to publications and training resources, the company has introduced the EDR Vapor Int
