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 electronic mailing list serving

over 1,700 members worldwide, including consultants, regulators,
researchers, and industry representatives. The BioGroup was developed
to be a global forum for discussion of intrinsic bioremediation (natural
attenuation) and enhanced bioremediation.  It is our hope this forum
provides a medium for technology transfer and standardization of
biotreatability protocols, and advances the science/engineering of
bioremediation.  GZA recognizes bioremediation is not a panacea
for soil/groundwater contamination; however, we believe it to be an
under-utilized remedial technology, 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/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 National Water
Research Institute (Environment Canada), and GZA.  The archive URL
is http://gwrp.cciw.ca/internet/bioremediation/biorem-archive.html.

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.
