Abstract : Intensely monitored sites, sites as the Borden Landfill in Canada, have greatly contributed to our understanding of the physical and chemical processes that control the transport of chemicals in groundwater. For this project, we have used a similar approach (i.e., intensively monitored sites with specially-designed monitoring networks) to address the critical groundwater-to-indoor-air vapor intrusion pathway. By increasing our understanding of this critical pathway, guidelines can be improved, thereby better focusing Department of Defense (DoD) efforts and associated cost increases on only those sites where indoor vapor concerns are warranted. This interim report presents our results for the evaluation of vapor intrusion processes at the first of three demonstration sites: the Building 418 at the Altus Air Force Base (AFB), Oklahoma.
