With the large national investment on development related to water, energy, transportation and allied fields in the country, and considering the important role of the hydraulic research in maximizing the output from these investment, the need for setting up a national forum to bring together the hydraulic engineering fraternity was keenly felt. In order to fulfill this need The Indian Society for Hydraulics (ISH) has been set up in 1992 as a technical, educational and non-profiteering voluntary national organization to encourage and foster understanding amongst engineers, scientists and other technical personnel engaged in various activities related to hydraulics.

Official address of the ISH is Central Water and Power Research Station, Khadakwasla, Pune-411024, India.
