Stimulating the in situ activity of Geobacter species to remove uranium from the groundwater of a uranium-contaminated aquifer


Stimulating the in situ activity of Geobacter species to remove uranium from the groundwater of a uranium-contaminated aquifer



Applied and Environmental Microbiology 69(10): 5884-5891

DOI: 10.1128/aem.69.10.5884-5891.2003

The potential for removing uranium from contaminated groundwater by stimulating the in situ activity of dissimilatory metal-reducing microorganisms was evaluated in a uranium-contaminated aquifer located in Rifle, Colo. Acetate (1 to 3 mM) was injected into the subsurface over a 3-month period via an injection gallery composed of 20 injection wells, which was installed upgradient from a series of 15 monitoring wells.
