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.
