About IWA Korean National Committee

The IWA-KNC functions as the Korean representative to the IWA. The IWA-KNC also assists to organize the IWA conferences and workshops in Korea, as well as promote IWA publications.

The Korean National Committee of IAWPRC (International Association on Water Pollution Control & Research) formed in 1985 by KSWPRC (Korean Society on Water Pollution Research & Control). President of KSWPRC was the chair of KNC. IAWPRC became IAWQ (International Association on Water Quality), within the same time, KSWPRC changed to KSWQ (Korean Society on Water Quality), later renamed to KSWE (Korean Society on Water Environment).

When IAWQ and IWSA (International Water Supply Association) merged to launch IWA (International Water Association) in 1999, IWA-KNC (IWA Korean National Committee) was also formed. At the time of merge, IAWQ-KNC Chair and IWSA-KNC Chair agreed to form one KNC for IWA and Prof E Choi became the first IWA KNC Chair. 

Although all Korean IWA members are eligible IWA-KNC member, the IWA-KNC's officers are the members who organized the IWA specialty conferences  as well as actively participated IWA activities.

국제물학회 한국위원회(IWA-KNC) 소개

IWA-KNC 중요 기능은 IWA 대표기관으로 한국내 IWA학회나 워크샾 같은 활동을 지원하며 기타 IWA 통한 출판도 돕습니다.

IAWPRC (International습 Association on Water Pollution Control & Research, 국제수질오염관리 학회) 한국위원회(KNC) 1985 설립되었는데, 설립 당시 한국수질오염관리학회 (KSWPRC, Korean Society on Water Pollution Research & Control) 회장인 홍순우 교수 (서울대) KNC 의장을 겸임했습니다 (아래 IAWPRC 1987 연감 참고).  IAWPRC 나중에 IAWQ 개칭함에 따라 KSWQ 개칭합니다.

1999 IAWQ(국제수질관리학회) IWSA(국제수도협회)가 합병하여 IWA (국제물학회)가 만들어질때 동시에 한국 내 두 국제기관의 KNC도 통합하여 IWA-KNC 만듭니다당시 IAWQ 한국위원회(KNC) 의장은 한국물환경학회의 최의소 교수였고 IWSA 한국위원회 의장은 한국수도협회(KWSA, Korean Water Supply Association) 회장인 곽영필 도화 회장인데 최의소 교수가 통합된 IWA-KNC 초대 의장 됩니다.

1985 이래 한국물환경학회는IAWPRC - IAWQ - IWA 학회회원이며 자매학회로서 한국대표위원회로 기능했으며 KNC 활동은 이사회에 보고되었습니다.

IWA 한국회원은 모두 IWA-KNC회원이지만, IWA-KNC Officer(Committee 섹션 참고) IWA 전문가 회의(Specialty conference) 등을 주도적으로 조직한 회원입니다. 지금까지 IAWPRC - IAWQ - IWA KNC 각종 활동 중 한국물환경학회지에 수록된 자료는 PDF파일에 있습니다.
