Abstract

Sediments from two shallow, methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE)-contaminated aquifers, with mean ground water temperatures ???10??C, demonstrated significant mineralization of [U-14C] MTBE to 14CO 2 at incubation temperatures as low as 4??C. These results indicate that microbial degradation can continue to contribute to the attenuation of MTBE in ground water under wintertime, low-temperature conditions. ?? 2006 National Ground Water Association.
