Abstract : The single-well test methods were developed and demonstrated to determine: 1) the transport characteristics of nutrients, substrates, and CAHs and their transformation products; 2) the capability of indigenous microorganisms capability to utilize selected substrates and transform targeted contaminants and surrogate compounds; 3) the rates of substrate utilization and contaminant transformation; and 4) the combinations of injected nutrients and substrates that maximize rates of contaminant transformation.
