Pollution Dynamics and Mitigation (PDM)

The fate, transport and mitigation of pollution is a key focus of SWES research programs.  SWES is known for its research in the areas of contaminant hydrology including the transport and fate of chemicals, colloids and pathogens, groundwater remediation, and water protection, reuse, sustainability and management.  In particular, we have very strong programs and co-direct the NIEHS Superfund program that addresses major chemical contaminants and exposure routes in the Southwest.
