The present paper illustrates a Monte Carlo simulation-based compartment model for evaluating the expected dose to the critical group from direct intake of contaminated water. An application to a realistic case study is presented to demonstrate the feasibility of the approach. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
