Position Summary:   This advanced technical position serves as the Remediation and Redevelopment (RR) Program lead worker and team leader for assessment of vapor intrusion, mitigation to address vapor exposure pathways, and development of policy related to all aspects of vapor intrusion. This person will also lead the program in assessment, mitigation, remediation and policy development related to emerging contaminants. This person develops and interprets administrative rules, guidance documents, and technical documents related to the assessment, mitigation and remediation of vapor phase contamination, evaluation and implementation of remedial technologies to address chlorinated solvents, other vapor sources, and emerging contaminant impacts. This person serves as a technical resource for hydrogeologists and engineers who serve as Project Managers for contamination cleanup projects. This covers all response action sites including: dry cleaner sites, Superfund sites, Leaking Underground Storage Tank (LUST) sites, RCRA Corrective Action sites, Hazardous Waste remediation cases, state funded cleanups, and hazardous substance spill situations.

This person is responsible for providing training to agency staff as well as interested external parties on: assessment of the potential for vapor intrusion, mitigation of vapor contamination in structures, investigation and remediation of emerging contaminants, and general interpretation of geology and hydrogeology.

Proper coordination by this person between other Department programs and government agencies is critical to successfully completing these duties.
