The authors review 35 approaches for remediation of metals in groundwater, broadly classified under chemical, biological, and physico-chemical treatment processes. Comparison tables are provided for a better understanding of each category. At many sites, two or more techniques can perform synergistically for better results.

NJDEP Chromium Workgroup
New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection Website.

In March 2004, scientists from the New Jersey Division of Science, Research and Technology were charged with reviewing the current human health-based soil cleanup criteria for chromium in response to concerns voiced by the Hudson County community where most of the state's chromium ore-processing waste sites are located. NJDEP has posted numerous reports (from 1991 to the present) on the monitoring, measurement, and environmental fate of hexavalent chromium in air (dust), soil, and water. The website is routinely updated.
