About IMWA

Logo IMWA

“The International Mine Water Association (IMWA) is an interdisciplinary organization focused on various aspects of mine water, including its hydrology, chemistry, biology, environmental aspects, and potential reuse, as well as how best to control it through better prediction, management, and treatment. Some members of IMWA are experts in specific branches of natural sciences and technology and conduct research that is directly relevant to mine water problems while many others are practioners, consultants, and regulators who are interested in learning how the results of such research can be applied at specific sites.
IMWA was founded in 1979 in Granada, Spain as a result of interest shown at the “First International Mine Drainage Symposium”. Since then, we have organized a Congress every three years and annual symposia and workshops on topical subjects.”
