  • 305 - Arsenic Complicates Groundwater Bioremediation -- Alvarez-Cohen
    Release Date: 05/06/2020

    A common groundwater contaminant, trichloroethene (TCE), can be reduced by certain bacteria, a process known as bioremediation. But, according to a new NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) study, this process may stall when arsenic is present. TCE, a widely used industrial solvent, pollutes groundwater from improper handling practices.
