Bacteria-Contaminants Interactions


Our objectives are: • A better understanding of bacteria-contaminant interactions in ground water, because of the persistence of many contaminants in the subsurface environment and because of increasing demands for both high-quality ground water and on-land disposal of toxic chemicals. • A better understanding of microbial transport through the terrestrial subsurface because of the implications for public health (microbial contamination of wells) and because of its roles in groundwater ecology and in the fate of groundwater contaminants.
