Abstract : Bioremediation of organics in nutrient-amended groundwater has been successful for aromatic hydrocarbons like benzene, toluene, and xylenes. These compounds are present in the RMA South Tank Farm Plume (STFP) including dicyclopentadiene and bicycloheptadiene. A project work plan has been developed to study natural and enhanced microbial degradation of these compounds in aquifer cores from the STFP. Laboratory screening experiments will be performed in soil-ground water microcosms supplemented with oxygen and/or nutrients.
