The IAHR Regional Hydro-Environment Heritage Award is conferred by IAHR during one or more of the Europe Division Congresses on a local infrastructure of lasting and international importance. It has the purpose of giving international professional recognition to the work of local hydro-environment engineers, and should demonstrably have stood the test of time (and be at least one hundred years old) and be accepted and valued nationally.
