Environmental Scientist/Engineer,

GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. (GZA, http://www.gza.net) hosts the 
Bioremediation Discussion Group (BioGroup, http://biogroup.gzea.com) 
on the Internet, which consists of a moderated mailing list serving 
over 1,400 members worldwide, including environmental consultants, 
regulators, researchers, and industry representatives. The BioGroup 
is a global forum for discussion of intrinsic bioremediation 
(natural attenuation) and enhanced bioremediation. It is our hope 
this forum provides a medium to transfer technology, standardize 
biotreatability protocol, and advance the science/engineering of 
bioremediation.  GZA recognizes that bioremediation is not a 
panacea for soil/groundwater contamination; however, we believe it 
is an under-utilized remedial technology, its limitations 

The forum was developed to be a springboard for the pursuit of
innovative approaches to bioremediation.  Because success of the 
BioGroup is a function of member participation, GZA invites anyone 
with experience/interest in bioremediation to join.  Due to the 
complex biogeochemical processes that control contaminant 
transformation, we welcome input from environmental engineers, 
hydrogeologists, soil scientists, microbiologists, environmental 
chemists, and all who wish to contribute to this important topic.

Postings are archived as a collaborative effort of the University 
of Guelph (Environmental Biology Department), the National Water 
Research Institute (Environment Canada), and GZA.  The archive URL is

To join the BioGroup, please visit http://biogroup.gzea.com, select 
"Membership Info", and follow the directions therein.  Members select
whether to participate in a non-digest mode (i.e., receive each 
message at the time it is accepted) or a digest mode (i.e., receive one 
message each day summarizing all the postings of that day).  ***There 
is no membership fee.***

Please direct any questions about the BioGroup to my attention.
