Groundwater body boundaries in Greek study areas according to WFD.

The case studies of Greece are located in Central Evia (Psachna, Politika, Triada), in Assopos basin (Thiva and Oinofyta) and in Northeast Peloponnese (Loutraki and Schinos).

Ophiolitic rock exposures are a common characteristic of the case study areas, where only in the industrial area of Oinofyta there is a clear contribution of anthropogenic Cr(VI) in water.

Weathering and erosion of serpentinized ultramafic rocks are possibly the main responsible processes for the mobility of Cr from the bedrock to sediments, soils and aquifers.

Over 100 groundwater samples have been collected and analysed from the Greek study areas during the CrITERIA project.
