The core message of the primer is that early consideration of vapor intrusion beginning during the Phase I environmental site assessment will help ensure that redevelopment protects the health of current and future building occupants. In addition, incorporating relatively inexpensive mitigation (prevention) techniques into the construction of new buildings, rather than retrofitting them later, will result in significant cost savings and help avoid the occurrence of vapor intrusion in the future. Because there are many available, cost-effective approaches to mitigation, vapor intrusion need not stand in the way of brownfields redevelopment.

"This primer is designed for land revitalization stakeholders concerned about vapor intrusion, including property owners, municipalities, and real estate developers. It provides an overview of the vapor intrusion issue and how it can affect redevelopment. It also summarizes techniques for quickly and cost effectively assessing the potential for vapor intrusion, as well as techniques for mitigating it. The topics covered will familiarize stakeholders with options for addressing vapor intrusion to help them communicate with their project contractors and consultants."--Page 1.
