Experts and long-serving members in the EWRI focus fields of water resources and the environment are recognized annually at the EWRI Congress. A wide array of honors, several including cash prizes, exist to award students, younger members, career professionals, projects, authors of ASCE-published papers, and researchers/educators. EWRI invites nominations that recognize civil engineers who advance the profession either through achievement or published papers.
