This paper examined chromium transport through dispersion and storage coefficient influences. The study has monitored the deposition of chromium in silty and fine sand formation. The developed model expressed the behaviour of chromium in the study location, storage coefficient and dispersions of chromium were examined through the behaviour of chromium transport in silty and fine sand formation, the behaviour were expressed through graphical representation, the fluctuation on concentration reflect the influences from porosity variation thus dispersion and storage coefficient. This generated slight accumulation of chromium deposition in silty and fine sand formation, this condition was examined through the rate of chromium deposition; some fluctuations were experienced from the experimental values for model validation. The heterogeneous settings in the formation were also observed, the developed model was compared with other experimental values, and both parameters expressed favourable fits validating the model.
