This draft incorporates a microbial Health Based Target (HBT) developed by the NHMRC Water Quality Advisory Committee (WQAC) using the WHO's Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment (QMRA) framework. Treatment targets are based on source water category using the best available Australian evidence/data to determine the type and number of treatments required to meet the microbial HBT.
The purpose is to inform water utilities and regulators on the water treatment needed to reduce microbial risk to an acceptable level.
Consultation is open for 60 days until Friday 29 June 2018 5pm (AEST) and interested parties are invited to make a submission to NHMRC about the proposed changes.
The draft amendments and information on how to make a submission can be obtained from the NHMRC public consultation website
Issues raised during the public consultation process will be considered by the WQAC in finalising the chapter, which will then be published as part of the ADWG.
