Title: Laboratory studies indicating the potential for bioremediation of high explosives in soil at the Pantex Plant
Author: Medlock, Walter N
Abstract: The main purpose of this thesis is to provide information in support ofthe field study. In May of 1998, eight, 30-ft wells were constmcted at the field study site to facilitate the gas injection and extraction procedure. The core samples from these wells were preserved and transported to Texas Tech University where they were analyzed with the following objectives in mind: (1) delineate the extent of HE contamination at the field study site, (2) determine if microbial (metabolic) activity is present in the soil, (3) enumerate the anaerobic microbial population, and (4) examine the relationships among HE concentration, metabolic activity, and microbial population.
