The research interest has focused on the Assopos basin because it is an industrial zone (hundreds of industrial plants, such as using chromium plating, leather tanning and applying wood staining). 10 groundwater samples, 15 soil samples and 21 rock samples were collected from the extended area of the municipality of Messapia in central Euboea and from the neighboring area of Avlona. Stable chromium isotopes (δ53Cr) were measured in groundwater and leachates in order to identify potential sources for Cr-contamination. The results indicate that efficient processes in the aquifers may facilitate natural attenuation of the toxic Cr(VI) to less harmful Cr(III)
