Contamination of groundwater with volatile organic compounds such as chlorinated benzenes is an important environmental pollution problem. Therefore monitoring these substances in groundwater is necessary for determination of water contamination. Chlorinated benzenes are found relatively in low concentrations in surface waters compared with ground waters because of their volatility. In this study Bromobenzene and chlorinated benzenes such as 1,3-Diklorobenzen, 1,4-Diklorobenzen, 1,2-Diklorobenzen, 1,2,4-Triklorobenzen, 1,2,3-Triklorobenzene in groundwater were determined by the micro extraction method (EPA method 504). The monitoring of chlorinated benzenes in well and spring water which supply the drinking water for Konya was carried out. In the study, it was determined that chlorinated benzenes was below the concentration limited by EPA and WHO

Key Words: Chlorinated benzenes; micro extraction; GC/ECD; groundwater.
