    The evaluation of solute transport in groundwater is particularly important for environmental engineers involved in the design of urban environments. In general, the simulation of solute transport in porous medium has been linked with fluid flow, which has commonly based on Darcy law. Unlike previous work, we use a more generalized fluid flow model with poro-elastic theory, in which Darcy model is one of its special cases. The new feature of the new model is the inclusion of soil characteristics and behavior in the prediction of solute transport in aquifers. Based on the new model, numerical example demonstrates significant influence of poro-elastic soil behavior on the movement of zone of peak concentration of solute in groundwater.
