Biostimulation of groundwater microbial communities (e.g., with carbon sources) is a common approach to achieving in situ bioremediation of organic pollutants (e.g., explosives). We monitored a field-scale approach to remediate the explosive RDX (hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine) in an aquifer near the Iowa Army Ammunition Plant in Middletown, IA. The purpose of the study was to gain insight into the effect of biostimulation on the microbial community. Biostimulation with acetate led to… CONTINUE READING
