The Western Australian Branch of IAH has been active since the early 1980s and has the highest concentration of member Hydrogeologists in the world (about 250 members, 6.25%).
The WA Branch holds free monthly technical meetings which attract 30 to 50 scientists, and a paid annual seminar attracting up to 160 delegates. A field trip is usually organised each year which attracts up to 60 members. The state chapter is also a strong supporter of the Early Careers Hydrogeologists Network (ECHN), a subsidiary of IAH.

In September 2013 the Western Australian Branch hosted the 40th Annual Congress of the IAH which attracted 740 delegates from more than 120 countries. The Congress entitled “Solving the Groundwater Challenges of the 21st Century” was an outstanding success.
The 2015 WA Branch Committee is made up of 17 Hydrogeologists who were elected at the state AGM on 19 November 2014. The Committee meets monthly.
