The CAG Water Quality/Technical Committee has invited Lenny Siegel as guest to the April meeting to discuss the topic of the Vapor-Intrusion-Barrier and its use as a Brownfield Remediation measure for sites where contamination is to remain, and housing is to be constructed.
Lenny Siegel has been Executive Director of the Center for Public Environmental Oversight since 1994. He is one of the American environmental movement’s leading experts on both the vapor intrusion pathway and military facility contamination, having provided technical assistance to and visited scores of community organizations across the U.S. For his organization he runs two Internet newsgroups: the Military Environmental Forum and the Brownfields Internet Forum, as well as activist discussion lists on TCE and PFAS. He has served on several ITRC (Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council) work teams on environmental remediation, including Vapor Intrusion Mitigation, and a dozen National Research Council committees addressing military environmental issues. In July 2011 Siegel was awarded U.S. EPA’s Superfund Citizen of the Year award for his work overseeing the Moffett Field/MEW Superfund project, site of one of U.S. EPA’s earliest and largest vapor intrusion investigations. He served as Mayor of Mountain View, California in 2018.
All Gowanus CAG meetings are open to the public.
