SHL was designated an American Water Landmark by the American Waterworks Association, and a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

Stanley Hydraulics Laborataory  has received several awards for significant events that have occurred within this historic structure. This includes an American Water Landmark award from the American Water Works Association, granted in 2000. This was presented for SHL’s current and past impact on the way water is studied and used locally and worldwide, and in particular for its contributions to water distribution and plumbing systems, water quality and quantity monitoring, sediment-control systems, and pump-intake design.

The American Society of Civil Engineers recognized SHL as a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark in 2005, because of the breadth, duration, and significance of the research and education performed here. This award states that the SHL is the oldest university-based hydraulics laboratory in the nation continuously focusing on research and education in hydraulic engineering.

Both award plaques are mounted next to the entrance door at the north end of the building.
