Abstract In a private residence using gasoline-contaminated ground water (approximately 300 micrograms/l benzene), a series of experiments were performed to assess the potential benzene exposures that may occur in the shower stall, bathroom, master bedroom, and living room as a result of a single 20-min shower. Integrated fixed site SUMMA(Trademark)-polished canister and Tenax GC(Patented) air samples were collected in the target microenvironments over 20, 60, and 240 min periods. Inhalation exposures in the shower stall during the 20-min shower were 2.1 - 4.9 times higher than corresponding 20-min bathroom exposures. The results indicate that domestic use of gasoline-contaminated water can produce relatively high benzene exposures that vary significantly according to an individual's proximity to the water use zone.
