In this paper, we use mass transportation theory to study pollution  transfer in  porous media.  We show   the existence of a $L^2-$regular vector field defined by a $W^{1, 1}-$ optimal transport map. A sufficient condition for solvability of our model, is given by   a (non homogeneous) transport equation with  a  source defined by a measure. The mathematical framework used, allows us to  show in some specifical cases, existence of solution for  a nonlinear PDE deriving from the modelling. And we end by numerical simulations.
