March Technical Seminar for Members

Wednesday 25th March 2020

Topic: "How to use attenuation factors in a site-specific vapour intrusion risk assessment", Jackie Wright, enRiskS

Venue Arcadis - Level 16, 580 George Street, Sydney.

Time: 5.30 pm drinks and nibbles, 6.00 pm presentation begins.

This talk will provide an overview of what attenuation factors are, where they are used in the assessment of vapour intrusion risks for contaminated sites. And how we use attenuation factors in Australia for screening. The talk will then focus on how we can do a site-specific assessment using attenuation factors, including what site-specific data and information may be needed to support such assessments. Various different approaches that are available in Australia and internationally will be discussed. This is intended to provide information to assist contaminated land practitioners in better understanding attenuation factors and how these can be used to support a site-specific assessment. The talk will also identify when attenuation factors are not suitable for a site-specific assessment, and what other approaches may be considered. 

Dr Jackie Wright is the Director of enRiskS, Fellow of ACTRA and adjunct researcher with Flinders University. She has around 30 years experience in the assessment of risks to human health and the environment, including vapour intrusion risks. She has been directly involved in the development of national guidance in the NEPM and CRC CARE Technical reports.
