Groundwater samples were collected at a drinking water abstraction aquifer at two locations, five different depths. Biodegradation of the MPs BAM, MCPP and 2,4-D was assessed in microcosms with groundwater samples, either without amendment, or amended with electron acceptor (nitrate or oxygen) and/or carbon substrate (dissolved organic carbon (DOC)). Oxygen + DOC was the most successful amendment resulting in complete biodegradation of 2,4-D in all microcosms after 42 days. DOC was most likely used as a growth substrate that enhanced co-metabolic 2,4-D degradation with oxygen as electron acceptor.
