The objective of this Statement of Need (SON) is to solicit fundamental and applied research that leads to better pathway assessment for vapor intrusion from chlorinated solvent-contaminated groundwater. Specific objectives include:
The projects listed below were selected to address the objectives of this SON. Additional information on individual projects can be found by clicking the project title.
Research proposals will lead to the development of a greater understanding of the vapor intrusion pathway from chlorinated solvent-contaminated groundwater plumes will improve our ability to provide more accurate prediction, monitoring, and management methodologies. Research conducted through this SON will ultimately lead to development of a more cost-effective protection of human health.
