During the 1994-97 water years, a hydrogeological study was carried out on the alluvial aquifer of Sparta in the Peloponnese, Greece, where the concentration of nitrate ions in groundwater, as NO-3, is over the highest recommended WHO limits of 50 mg l-. Under specific hydrological and chemical conditions with high amounts of dissolved oxygen, the migration of nitrate ions in the aquifer, seems to be unaffected by any hydrological process, chemical substance or reaction.
