A Eulerian-Langrangian scheme is used to reformulate the equation of solute transport with ground water in saturated soils. The governing equation is decomposed into advection along characteristic path lines and propagation of the residue at a fixed grid. The method was employed to simulate transport of a conservative pollutant in a hypothetical aquifer, subject to the equivalence of real conditions. Implementation was based on data involving parameters of a heterogeneous aquifer, heavy flux stresses of densed pumpage/recharge wells, precipitation and seasonally changing flow regimes. Simulation, with coarse grid and high Peclet numbers yielded minute mass balance errors.
