Environmental Scientist/Engineer,

GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. (GZA, http://www.gza.net) hosts the 
Bioremediation Discussion Group (BioGroup, http://biogroup.gzea.com) 
on the Internet.  The BioGroup consists of a moderated mailing 
list with over 1,300 members worldwide, including environmental 
consultants, regulators, researchers, and industry representatives.  

The BioGroup is a global forum for the discussion of intrinsic/enhanced 
bioremediation topics.  It is our hope that this forum provides a 
medium to transfer technology, standardize biotreatability protocols, 
and advance the science/engineering of bioremediation technologies.  
GZA recognizes bioremediation is not a panacea for soil/groundwater 
contamination; however, we feel it is an under-utilized remediation 
technology, its limitations notwithstanding.

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 and/or interest in bioremediation to join.  Due 
to the complexities of the biogeochemical processes that control 
contaminant biotransformation, we welcome input from environmental 
engineers, hydrogeologists, soil scientists, microbiologists, 
environmental chemists, and all who wish to contribute to this 
important topic.

BioGroup postings are archived as a collaborative effort of the
University of Guelph Dpt. of Environmental Biology, 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 may 
participate in either a non-digest mode (i.e., receive each message 
at the time it is posted) 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.
