Iron bugs

Had a discussion about a soil remediation project at work yesterday. I learned that metallic iron is very good at removing chlorinated organics from ground water. It reacts directly with the chlorine and helps the microbes eat the stuff as well. It brings a whole new meaning to "pumping iron". I can just imagine millions of soil bacteria with little bulging muscles.
