Abstract: Groundwater aquifers are important water supply sources in several urban and rural regions in Alabama. The capability to protect and manage these precious resources depends on our ability to understand the fate and transport of anthropogenic contaminant species that are inadvertently discharged into streams. This project will focus on the development of a bioremediation technology for solving groundwater pollution problems associated with chlorinated solvents.
