Short description: his workshop was sponsored by the US EPA and the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality. Desert environments in the southwestern United States and similar areas present a number of unique challenges to subsurface cleanup. Groundwater can be extremely deep and the presence of clays and fractured rock can reduce the effectiveness of some standard cleanup technologies. The goal of the workshop was to gather practitioners and others with remediation expertise in these desert environments and to present both lecture and poster presentations on their ideas for remediating soil and groundwater. The scope of the workshop was limited to sites with VOCs, perchlorate and chromium, as these contaminants present some of the greatest challenges for cleanup
