Tabriz plain with area of 869 square kilometers is a part of the Urmieh lake's catchment. The purpose of this study is to simulate the behavior of Tabriz aquifer against various stresses and determine the permissible level for the operation of the aquifer. To achieve the above objective the system dynamics simulation method has been used.
In this regard, the required information includes ground water resources data (wells, springs, qanat), sources and consumptions after analysis to eliminate defects was given to the VENSIM PLE+ software, and a dynamic simulation model was developed. Then by define the range of allowed water table fluctuations and the allocation of extracted water under these conditions, the allowable water level and safe yield of the aquifer was determined.
According to the obtained results in the six-year modeling period, the maximum amount of monthly and annual extraction without any damage from the aquifer is 12.70 and 152.45 million cubic meters respectively. The average of minimum and maximum allowable water table level during this period are 1317.35 and 1322.34 meters respectively.

The present study aimed at identifying the nitrate transport in the groundwater of Lenjanat plain, Isfahan. Nitrate concentrations were measured seasonally and groundwater flow was modeled for nitrate transport simulation using MODFLOW and MT3DMS codes. The nitrate concentrations were compared with the human and livestock drinking water and irrigation water standards. The results show that nitrate concentrations are higher than the guidelines limits in groundwaters. The flow modeling reveals that the groundwater flow system of the study aquifer has been influenced by the aquifer hydrogeological characteristics. The falling watertable and reduce aquifer storage are due to the anthropogenic stresses on flow system. The transport model calibration and sensitivity analysis shows that nitrate leaching from agricultural land, first–order irreversible rate reaction, effective porosity and precipitation are the major factors affecting the entry and retention of nitrate in Lenjanat groundwater. Denitrification rate in the aquifer has been decreased due to high concentration of dissolved oxygen in groundwater and low extent of organic carbon. Half-life of nitrate in Lenjanat aquifer is more than 2.5 years. Nitrate transport in the aquifer is mainly by convection. Considering the calculated mass with transport model, the nitrogen leaching to groundwater of study area is 108 kg N ha-1 yr-1.
