Drinking Water Guidelines

The Australian Drinking Water Guidelines (ADWG) have been developed by NHMRC. The ADWG incorporates the Framework for the Management of Drinking Water Quality and provides the Australian community and the water supply industry with guidance on what constitutes good quality drinking water.
