An investigation of the mobility, viability, and activity of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) degrading bacteria in an electric field is presented. Bench-scale model aquifers were used to test electrophoresis and electroosmosis as potential mechanisms for bacterial dispersion in contaminated sites. Glass beads, alluvial sand from Lake Geneva, and historically polluted clayey soil were used as packing materials. The green-fluorescent protein labeled PAH-degrading bacteria Sphingomonas sp. L138 and Mycobacterium frederiksbergense LB501TG were used as test organisms because of the known d…
