The potential threat of immobilized gasoline in the vadose zone to groundwater resources is evaluated using a two-dimensional solute transport model. A parametric sensitivity analysis identified the ranking order of most important transport parameters. A conservative prediction of benzene transport shows a long term threat to groundwater resources located a half mile down-gradient from the contamination source.
