Chris Roe recently commented on the EPA’s decision to issue final guidance on vapor intrusion, saying it should bring a consistent approach to vapor intrusion across all EPA regions.

"It will be helpful to have final guidance from EPA," said Roe. "Regions are making individual decisions about what constitutes sufficient investigations of this pathway. This causes inconsistency and uncertainty.”

While he thinks the new guidance will be helpful, Roe was disappointed that the EPA will not circulate a draft of the final guidance for public comment before its release.
