The GN Alexander Medal for Water Engineering was created in 1987. The award is dedicated to the memory of Mr Geoffrey Newman Alexander (1908-1975), in recognition of his contribution to Australian hydrology.

The Award takes the form of a bronze inscribed medal(s) and/or certificate(s) which is/are conferred by Engineers Australia on the author(s) of the best paper in water engineering published in an Engineers Australia publication over the period from and including the previous Hydrology and Water Resources Symposium. Such publications include the Proceedings of the previous Hydrology and Water Resources Symposium, Proceedings from any intervening NCWE conferences and the Australian Journal of Water Resources.

The Award is presented at each Hydrology and Water Resources Symposium, held approximately at eighteen-month intervals. Responsibility for selecting the recipient rests with the National Committee on Water Engineering. It was first awarded in Canberra in February 1988.
