Reston Biogeochemical Processes in Groundwater Laboratory

Science

The Reston Biogeochemical Processes in Groundwater Laboratory (RBPGL) research team conducts long-term investigations on the fate and geochemical effects of organic contaminants in subsurface environments.

RBPGL research aligns with the objectives of the USGS Toxics Substances Hydrology Program and the overall USGS mission of providing earth science information on toxic substances in the Nation’s surface water and groundwater. Our research products provide a basis for water resources managers to make science-based decisions when developing effective remediation strategies and to preventing further contamination.
