New York State was forced to become a leader in Soil Vapor Intrusion.
Endicott NY, located in the Southern Tier of NYS, has provided one of the largest studies in the US on Soil Vapor Intrusion. The results from the Endicott site and study have provided thousands of Sub-slab, Indoor, and Ambient air samples that have helped NYS to understand that Soil Vapor Intrusion is not as predictable as once thought. Assisting NYS DEC and NYS DOH in understanding what was achievable from an analytical standpoint, Centek worked on sampling, detection limits, tracer gases, and public relations.
Centek has based its analytical procedures and detection limits to coincide with NYS DOH Guidelines and matrices. The New York State Department of Health’s Guidance for Evaluating Soil Vapor Intrusion in the State of New York is a very conservative Guidance in both its detection limits and action levels. The guidance has been an evolving document for New York that Centek has helped to achieve public health protection, practicality, and the highest level of analytical integrity.
