Title: Bioaugmentation of an Engineered Metal Treatment Wetland with Cupriavidus SRS

Abstract

Cupriavidus SRS is a metal resistant, rod shaped, gram negative bacteria that was isolated from a location with heavy metal contamination at the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site in Aiken, South Carolina. This isolate has also been able to demonstrate antibiotic resistance and predatory behavior to other microorganisms, giving it a competitive advantage. The effect of bioaugmentation with Cupriavidus SRS and copper (Cu) uptake is not well understood, although multiple studies have analyzed this effect with other metal resistant bacteria. In this study, sediment from the AL1 outfall area will be inoculated with Cupriavidus SRS to analyze the effectiveness of the degradation of Cu.
