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 1,300 members worldwide, including environmental consultants, 
regulators, researchers, and industry representatives. The BioGroup 
was developed to be a global forum for discussion of intrinsic
bioremediation (natural attenuation) and enhanced bioremediation. 
It is our hope that this forum provides a medium to transfer 
technology, standardize biotreatability protocol, and advance the 
science/engineering of bioremediation technologies.  GZA recognizes 
bioremediation is not a panacea for soil/groundwater contamination; 
however, we feel it is an under-utilized remedial technology, its 
limitations notwithstanding.

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 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.
