A full-scale cleanup was performed using in situ bioremediation to treat MTBE and BTEX at a service station in Massachusetts. Soil at the site consists of a layer of sand and gravel underlain by peat, silt, and clay. The in situ bioremediation system consisted of 12 injection wells and two butane injection panels used to stimulate cometabolic aerobic biodegradation of the contaminants in groundwater. The system was operated between October 2000 and January 2001. MTBE concentrations were reduced from 370 to 12 ^g/L and BTEX contamination in groundwater was reduced by approximately two orders of magnitude during the 4-month period.74
