The work was motivated in part by interest in the injection of microorganisms with novel metabolic capabilities to remediate hazardous waste sites as well as by the importance of assessing the transport of pathogenic microorganisms to infiltration galleries and wells used for drinking water supplies. The effects of hydraulic conductivity and injection velocity on microbial transport through porous media were investigated. Glass chromatography columns were packed separately with clean quartz sand of two diameters (0.368 mm or 0.240 mm) and two hydraulic conductivities (.137 cm/sec and .0365 x 10-2 cm/sec respectively). Three injection velocities, .00118, .00235 and .00473 cm/sec were investigated. Microbial transport under the conditions tested was limited and could be predicted mathematically using a model for physicochemical filtration.
