The in situ bioremediation of aquifers contaminated with petroleum hydrocarbons is commonly based on the infiltration of groundwater supplemented with oxidants (e.g., O2, NO ‾3) and nutrients (e.g., NH+4, PO34‾). These additions stimulate the microbial activity in the aquifer and several field studies describing the...
