Increased quantities of various forms of nitrogen are being released to the soil systems and higher concentrations of nitrogeneous compounds are consequently making their way into subsoil regions. Knowledge of the behavior and fate of nitrogeneous chemical species in the subsurface environment is needed by those concerned with the prevention and control of ground-water pollution. This paper presents information concerning the nature and origin of nitrogeneous substances polluting ground water, the probable movement and reaction of nitrogeneous compounds in the subsurface environment, and specific cases of ground-water pollution by nitrogen-containing compounds.
