  5. 5. 5 BRAC Program Management Office. Past Sampling Activities • May - June 2012: Indoor Air Sampling • May - June 2013: Soil Gas and Groundwater Investigation • February 2014: Indoor Air Sampling • September 2015: Groundwater Investigation • January 2016: Indoor Air Sampling • January 2017: Indoor Air Sampling • Building 10 – Sampled Quarterly
  6. 6. 6 BRAC Program Management Office. Building Surveys • Prior to air sampling, 23 industrial/commercial buildings were surveyed for any recent modifications in the layout and operations of the HVAC systems • Collected real-time readings for volatile organic compounds using a hand-held photoionization detector (PID) during building surveys • PID readings used to optimize air sampling locations • Interviewed building managers regarding building use, operations, work hours of occupants, chemical use and storage
  7. 7. 7 BRAC Program Management Office. 2017 Air Sampling • A total of 211 samples were collected: – 169 indoor air samples (first floor and basements) – 13 pathway samples (i.e. crawl spaces, elevator shaft) – 29 outdoor ambient air samples (background) – Includes 8 samples from Building 10 • Samples collected with 6-liter canisters placed 36” to 60” above the floor and analyzed for COCs by EPA Method TO-15 SIM (selected ion monitoring) • Buildings were sampled for 8, 10, or 24 hours, depending on use and occupancy • Buildings with an HVAC system were sampled twice: – During work hours with the HVAC system operating – 36 to 48 hours after the building ventilation system had been shut down (following Martin Luther King Day weekend)

  9. 9. 9 BRAC Program Management Office. Indoor Air Cleanup Levels for Long-Term Exposure ROD Amendment for the Vapor Intrusion Pathway (EPA, 2010) Chemical of Concern Indoor Air Cleanup Level (μg/m3) Commercial for Long-Term Exposure Trichloroethene 5 Tetrachloroethene 2 cis-1,2-Dichloroethene 210 trans-1,2-Dichloroethene 210 Vinyl Chloride 2 1,1-Dichloroethane 6 1,1-Dichloroethene 700
  10. 10. 10 BRAC Program Management Office. SUMMARY OF TIERING SYSTEM AND RESPONSE ACTIONS FOR EXISTING COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS Tier Description Response Action 1 Building with indoor air concentrations greater than outdoor (background) air concentrations and indoor air cleanup levels. • Implement selected remedy to meet indoor air cleanup levels. • Once indoor air cleanup level is achieved and confirmed, building is recategorized as Tier 2. • Implement governmental, proprietary, and information institutional controls. 2 Building with indoor air concentrations below the indoor air cleanup levels, while an engineering control is in place or in operation. Also, former Tier 1 buildings with confirmed indoor air concentrations that are below the indoor air cleanup levels. • Ensure continued operation and maintenance of active ventilation system or other selected engineered remedy to meet remedial action objectives. • Develop and implement long-term monitoring and institutional controls implementation plan. • Where remedy is achieved through operation of an active ventilation system, agreement of property owner must be contained in a recorded agreement. 3A Building sampled without engineering control in place or operating with indoor air concentrations below indoor air cleanup levels, but greater than outdoor (background) concentrations. • No engineered remedy required. Develop and implement long-term monitoring plan. Implement governmental institutional controls. 3B Building sampled without engineering control in place or operating with indoor air concentrations at or within outdoor air (background) concentrations. • No engineered remedy or long-term monitoring required. Implement governmental institutional controls. 4 Buildings where converging lines of evidence demonstrate that there is no longer the potential for vapor intrusion into the building exceeding indoor air cleanup levels. • No action required after performance of all necessary confirmation sampling and documentation approved by USEPA that no action is necessary.
  11. 11. 11 BRAC Program Management Office. Draft 2016 Tier Evaluation • Tier 1: Buildings 45, 126, 567 • Tier 3A: 2, 3, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 29, 67, 76, 107, N210, N239, N239A, N243, N243A, 510, 555, 566
  12. 12. 12 BRAC Program Management Office. Future Activities • A detailed building tiering evaluation will be included in the Draft 2017 IR Site 28 Air Sampling and Vapor Intrusion Tier Response Evaluation Report (scheduled for June/July 2017) • Continue with CERCLA process
