IMPACTS OF NAVAL SHIPYARDS ON ADJACENT ECOSYSTEMS.

This (Naval Research Laboratory) project has the objective to determine the extent to which intrinsic bioremediation is occurring in groundwater contaminated with: gasoline; benzene; ethylbenzene; toluene; xylenes; methyl-tertbutyl ether (MTBB); and trichloroethylene (TCE). Preliminary findings suggest that the commingled contaminant plumes have significant bacterial productivity and contaminant-mineralization rates. Rapid bacterial production and benzene turnover rates at wells, which are down-gradients of the other BTEX plume(s), suggest that the natural bacterial assemblage has the capacity to inhibit migration of the plume.
