A one-dimensional model of groundwater flow, incorporating advection and adsorption of conservative pollutants has been presented. Based on earlier laboratory experiments on physical models and adopting the numerical solution of the presented mathematical model, the adsorption parameters k1 and n have been calculated for a non-linear function describing this process. Empirical relationships for the adsorption parameters characteristic of the aquifer and the ground water flow have been developed. These relationships should allow for better forecasting and estimation of groundwater quality at the intake.
