SERDP & ESTCP Webinar Series: Call for Registration
Quantitative Framework and Management Expectation Tool for the Selection of Bioremediation Approaches at Chlorinated Solvent Sites

Dr. John Wilson, Scissortail Environmental Solutions

12:00 PM ET (9:00 AM PT)
Join SERDP and ESTCP on Thursday, March 19 for presentations on Department of Defense (DoD) research efforts to develop a screening tool for the application of bioremediation at chlorinated solvent sites. This ESTCP project determined the relationship between biogeochemical parameters and degradation rates for known degradation pathways.
Data from more than 90 sites was used to establish correlations between naturally attained rate constants and specific parameters such as Dehalococcoides (Dhc) densities, reductase densities, dissolved oxygen, oxidation-reduction potential, magnetic susceptibility, Fe(II), Mn(II), methane, ethane, total organic carbon, and others.
These associations were then used to develop a quantitative framework and decision logic for the screening tool. Based on site-specific conditions at chlorinated solvent sites, the tool will provide screening considerations to determine if monitored natural attenuation (MNA), biostimulation, biologically mediated abiotic reductive dechlorination, or bioaugmentation is the most appropriate remedial approach at a contaminated site.
