Special four-day symposium on MTBE and drinking water

of environmental conditions on MTBE degradation in model column aquifers: The researchers tracked the rate at which MTBE degrades in sediments from four sites with different geological features. They found that on its own, MTBE degrades neither rapidly nor readily. (C. D. Church, Oregon Graduate Institute, Portland, Ore.; ENVR 120; Wednesday, March 29, 10:40 a.m., Hilton Imperial B, Ballroom Level. See page 107 in the final program.)

  • Field tests of enhanced intrinsic remediation of an MTBE plume: Solely by adding oxygen to sediment samples -- in lab and in field tests -- the researchers succeeded in inducing bacteria native to Vandenberg Air Force Base to rapidly digest and destroy MTBE. (D. Mackay, University of Waterloo, Ontario, Canada; ENVR 230; Thursday, March 30, 9:50 a.m., Hilton Imperial B, Ballroom Level. See page 108 in the final program.)
