This document is a final report on the performance of sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB) bioreactors that were constructed and operated for Mine Waste Technology Program (MWTP) Activity III, Project 12, Sulfate-Reducing Bacteria Reactive Wall Demonstration. Efforts reported in this document focused on the demonstration of a passive technology that could be used for remediation of thousands of abandoned mine sites existing in the Western United States that emanate acid mine drainage (AMD). This passive remedial technology takes advantage of the ability of SRB to increase pH and alkalinity of the water and to immobilize dissolved metals by precipitating them as metal sulfides or hydroxides.
