Welcome to the DWI Research pages. We believe that good quality science is crucial in the provision of credible and authoritative information on the health aspects of drinking water quality and it helps ensure that standards and regulations are adequate to protect public health. The DWI spends around £550K annually on research and development on drinking water quality issues.

These research web pages provides information to the aims and objectives of our research programme, access to the results and publications, and details of future research competitions. Summaries of our research output can also be found in the Chief Inspector’s report.

Enquiries about the DWI research programme, including publications of past research, should be directed to DWI Enquiries.
