The paper focuses on the natural attenuation of hexavalent chromium in soil and ground water. Much of the interest of natural attenuation of chromium stems from the great expense of remediating chromium-contaminated sites. Some of the issues discussed include the conditions that must be present for the necessary processes to occur, changes in toxicity, the time required for target concentrations to be reached, and assurances that chromium in the reduced state will remain immobile.
