About Israeli Water Association
The Israeli Water Association (IsWA) was founded in 2001 by professionals seeking to remain on the leading edge of scientific, practical, technological aspects of operation and maintenance in the field of water management in Israel. The goals are the exchange of ideas, exploration of the state of the art technologies and debating of key issues underlying the science and practice of water in the country. Since 2001 there have been numerous meetings, conferences, training courses and other activities in which many professionals have participated.
IsWA represents Israel in various international water organizations like IWA and WEF, together with the Israeli Government representatives.
IsWA thrives to cooperate with other water oriented organizations, as well as with the relevant Ministries and environmental non profit organizations.

Since 2001 there have been numerous meetings, conferences, training courses and other activities in which many have participated.
Training courses are important for employees in water and wastewater treatment plants, engineers, and governmental, municipal and industrial officials and workers.
Each course curriculum is based on recent research, theoretical viewpoints, practical applications, and available technology. Efforts are made to relate to important and relevant topics that help participants in their daily work.
Our lecturers are leaders in their fields of expertise, working in research, planning, and operations in different institutions and organizations. Course participants are staff members in the field of water, some have experience and some of them just have started working and must gain more theoretical and practical experience. The lessons and discussions during the course help expose participants to new information ideas, solutions and skills.
Four training courses have been conducted very successfully, with positive feedback, encouraging us to continue, offering these courses again and expanding to new topics.
Collaboration with BIOFORUM, which conducts applied training courses for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, is essential, as the company provides the professional, logistical, and administrative basis.
- Department of Applied Studies and Training presents a Program of four training courses which took place last year:
- Sludge in Wastewater Treatment Plants Technologies for Treatment,
Handling, and Disposal.
The course refers to sludge production in different plants - characterization, treatment technologies, proper and safe disposal, legal and economical aspects, laws and regulations, old and new technologies. Principals of planning, operation and trouble-shooting.
- Water and Wastewater in the Industry: Production, Treatment, Reclamation and Recycling.
Management of water, wastewater, energy and environment in the industry are very important issues all over the world. Water consumption and water quality, as well as wastewater treatment and disposal have to be considered carefully. As different industries have different processes, so the demands for water differ both quantity and quality.
The course will address theoretical and practical subjects from various industries. The students will be exposed to various problems related to process engineering, planning, construction, operation and maintenance.the ourse will also address standards and legal and economical aspects.
- Microbiological Processes in Wastewater Treatment Plants
(Domestic and Industrial Sewage): Helpful Tools for the Operators.
"Wastewater treatment" is the common expression for physical, chemical, biological and microbiological processes that take place in every plant, but the core of these is the microbiology. The course will provide the operator with theoretical and practical tools for better understanding and better control of the system and enable him to pinpoint problems and solve them in time.
- Water Treatment Technologies for potable use.
In order to safeguard public health it is necessary to treat water before distribution through the systems, so that water quality meets industry standards. Various types of basic and advanced technologies are applied to reach this goal. The course will provide the operator with theoretical and practical tools for better understanding and better control of the systems, and enable him to identify and solve problems in time.
- In-plant Training
Apart from the courses which are open to the public. We also offer in-plant courses tailored to the specific needs of the customer, offering training that is highly efficient. Courses can take place in the facilities or the working area.
