“25 years ago, California legislators established programs to clean up spills at gas stations and fueling sites. Since then, more than 37,000 contaminated sites have been stabilized and ruled no longer a threat to drinking water. But critics say the state has gone too far in relaxing cleanup standards.”
Biodegradation is happening at every site. Really? Even at fractured bedrock sites? Sites with very high concentrations of petroleum hydrocarbons in soil and groundwater. Every site? The data does not support this amazing conclusion.
At last some ratianolity in our little debate.
