Based on laboratory research and measurements in homes, the inhalation of volatile organic compounds from contaminated water supplies is an important route of exposure. Through the use of an indoor air quality/exposure microcomputer model MAVRIQ (Model for the Analysis of Volatiles and Residential Indoor air Quality), the effects of various human activities on potential dose are analyzed. The correlation between environmental factors, human activity patterns and the resulting potential inhalation doses for different individuals and pairs of individuals for the purpose of examining exposure and co-exposure effects is investigated. This results in an algorithm for relating simulated daily exposure to the total water use in the home.
