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 1,800 members worldwide, including
consultants, 
regulators, researchers, and industry representatives. The
BioGroup 
was developed to be a global forum for discussing both 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 
bioremediation
science and engineering.  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 pursuing
innovative approaches to
bioremediation.  Because BioGroup success 
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

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.
