Contents Notes
"The in-situ remediation of aquifers contaminated with halogenated aliphatic compounds, commonly known in water supply as chlorinated solvents, is a promising alternative in efforts to protect ground water. The full report presents the experimental methodology and the initial results of a field experiment evaluating the feasibility of in-situ biotransformation of trichloroethylene (TCE) and related compounds. The method being tested relies on the ability of methane-oxidizing bacteria to degrade these contaminants to stable, non-toxic, end products. The field site is located at the Moffett Naval Air Station, Mountain View, CA. The test zone is a shallow, confined aquifer composed of coarse grained alluvial sediments."
