Abstract
The current literature indicates that in situ biorestoration has great potential for remediation of aquifers contaminated by leaking underground storage tanks. In situ aquifer restoration involves the enhancement of the indigenous microflora to degrade subsurface pollutants. The presence of indigenous microorganisms that can degrade subsurface contaminants has been demonstrated. Enriching for microorganisms with special metabolic capabilities has been demonstrated in the laboratory and may be promising in in situ biorestoration schemes. Mathematical models of biorestoration have been developed to stimulate progress of the cleanup and provide information on the kinetics of the process. This report emphasizes the state-of-the-art knowledge of in situ biorestoration techniques available for remediation of contaminated ground water.
