Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Natural Attenuation & Pytoremediation News
>From US EPA TechDirect

Natural Attenuation for Groundwater Remediation.  This report was published
by the National Research Council's Committee on Intrinsic Remediation.  The
stated purpose of the report was to examine the public concerns about
natural attenuation, the scientific bases for natural attenuation, and the
criteria for evaluating the potential success or failure of natural
attenuation [March 2000, 245 pages].  The entire report is posted by
section on the web at
http://books.nap.edu/books/0309069327/html/index.html .  It
will be available in hard copy from the National Academy Press at
a later date.  See http://www.nap.edu for updated information.

Assessment of Phytoremediation as an In-Situ Technique for Cleaning
Oil-Contaminated Sites.  This report was published by the University of
Saskatchewan for the Petroleum Technology Alliance of Canada.  The
objective of this report is to evaluate the effectiveness of
phytoremediation as a tool for cleaning up soils and groundwater
contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons particularly those associated with
well site spills, pipeline ruptures and flare pits.  Although the report
focuses on petroleum hydrocarbons, due consideration has been given to
metals, pesticides, and salts, which can also be found in combination with
petroleum hydrocarbons at contaminated sites. Changes over time in the
interactions among contaminants, plants and microorganisms also are
considered [December 1999, 88 pages].  View or
