Abstract

Organic carbon from treated-sewage disposal, hyper-eutrophic lake sediments, and petroleum hydrocarbon spills can mobilize naturally occurring arsenic (As) by stimulating microbial reductive dissolution of Fe(III) oxyhydroxides These observations are stimulating investigations of the potential for past and present intentional or accidental releases of wastewater from oil and gas production to mobilize As in the subsurface.
