The talk will review how methane can and does affect Brownfield Sites and often how it is overlooked. Presentation will include methane source considerations, national guidances, screening levels, regulatory response, mitigation and monitoring and ongoing system and building operations, maintenance and monitoring. The discussion will review how other countries and areas are responding to methane, as well as, methane sources (i.e. landfill, VOCs, petroleum, peat/bogs and naturally occurring productions). Finally, what are the long term affects when methane has been discovered at a Brownfield Site and how it affects 1) the cleanup goals, 2) overall development, and 3) long term OM&M.


Tom Szocinski has over 18 years of professional environmental consulting experience focusing on vapor intrusion (VI) and mitigation, methane assessment and mitigation, site remediation, underground storage tank (UST) management, Brownfield Site management, and various subsurface environmental investigations throughout the United States (US), including Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), and Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA)/Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) regulated sites.

Tom is a certified environmental professional (CEP) and a VI specialist, having designed and implemented hundreds of vapor and methane mitigation systems across the globe. Most recently, he managed and directed the VI assessment and mitigation for the world’s largest online retailing and warehousing company, having managed the VI mitigation of over 15 million square feet of building space. Tom is a continued participating member of multiple state and federal regulatory review groups, teams, and boards to evaluate VI and methane guidances, mitigation, VI screening levels, and acceptable VI evaluation and mitigation approaches.
