In 1987, James and Knuiman published their analysis of a comprehensive domestic water use study conducted in Perth, Western Australia to quantify the components of water usage in approximately 3,000 households. This manuscript corrects errors and omissions about James and Knuiman's study in the US EPA's Exposure Factors Handbook, and it shows James and Knuiman's results in a notation readily used in Monte Carlo simulations.
