Environmental Scientist/Engineer,

GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc. (GZA) hosts the Bioremediation Discussion 
Group (BioGroup, http://biogroup.gzea.com) on the Internet.  The 
BioGroup consists of a moderated mailing list serving >1,500 members 
worldwide, including consultants, regulators, researchers, and 
industry representatives.  (Postings are moderated to screen out 
off-subject/commercial material).  The BioGroup is a global forum 
for discussion of intrinsic bioremediation (natural attenuation) and 
enhanced bioremediation. It is our hope this forum provides a medium 
to transfer technology, standardize biotreatability protocols, and 
advance the science/engineering of bioremediation.  GZA recognizes 
that bioremediation is not a panacea for soil/groundwater 
contamination; however, we believe it is an under-utilized remedial 
technology, limitations notwithstanding.

The forum was developed to be a springboard for the pursuit of
innovative approaches to bioremediation.  Because its 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 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.
