This fact sheet outlines the background, outcome and benefits of the Health Based Targets Manual Project. In 2011, the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) introduced the notion that Health Based Targets (HBT) could be introduced into the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines. In response, WSAA formed a Health Based Targets group to develop a practical approach to assessing HBTs. The WSAA HBT Manual documents the approach.
