Abstract : The objective of this project was to field-test in situ biological degradation for removal of organic contaminants from soils and groundwater. In situ biological degradation involves stimulation of the indigenous subsurface microbial population by the addition of nutrients and an oxygen source (hydrogen peroxide) to promote degradation of organic contaminants present in soils and groundwater. The results of the test at Kelly AFB allowed for a number of conclusions regarding in situ treatment. The low and variable permeabilities at the test site resulted in a slower delivery of nutrients and oxygen source than anticipated, as well as difficult operating conditions, but did not prevent degradation from occuring. This volume III report includes, in Appendix form, the analytical data collected during the demonstration project and analytical methods used.
