This study aims to demonstrate the potential for microbial degradation of chemicals used by the onshore gas industry across the Tertiary Limestone Aquifer (TLA) in the Limestone Coast region of south east South Australia.

This project will establish microbial community baselines in the Tertiary Limestone Aquifer in the Limestone Coast region is south east South Australia. The project will also examine microbial degradation of a range of chemicals likely to be used in onshore gas activities, in aquifer water samples.
