Classroom Training - Enhanced In Situ Bioremediation of Solvents in Ground Water

Return to Classroom Training Timeline

A variety of sources give rise to plumes of chlorinated solvents in soils and groundwater at tens of thousands of locations across the country. Remediation of these typically recalcitrant compounds has been problematic for a number of reasons and the costs of remediation are daunting. Research and full-scale implementation suggest that in situ bioremediation is a cost-effective solution in many cases. Developed by ITRC’s In Situ Bioremediation Team and the Remediation Technologies Development Forum, this course focused on the use of enhancements to the subsurface environment to accelerate the biodegradation of chlorinated solvents and was designed to provide technical and regulatory information sufficient for making informed decisions about the feasibility of enhanced in situ bioremediation projects. Participants worked with other members of the environmental community in solving realistic problems typically encountered when designing and operating an enhanced in situ bioremediation system.
