Health Related Water Microbiology (HRWM) is one of the Specialist Groups of the International Water Association (IWA). Our group was the first of the specialist groups, installed in 1977 as Water Virology Specialist Group (within the former IAWPRC). The Specialist Group is a forum for the exchange of scientific information in the field of health-related water microbiology. This encompasses many fields of expertise: from environmental to clinical virology, bacteriology and parasitology, from infectious diseases epidemiology to risk assessment methodology; from water treatment engineering to environmental health practice.
