Medal For Outstanding Achievements In Water Management Of The GDR.

Medaille für hervorragende Leistungen in der Wasserwirtschaft der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik

Die Medaille für hervorragende Leistungen in der Wasserwirtschaft der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik war eine staatliche Auszeichnung der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik (DDR). Gestiftet wurde die Medaille am 30. Januar 1975 in einer Stufe. Ihre Verleihung erfolgte für hervorragende Leistungen im sozialistischen Wettbewerb sowie der Erfüllung- bzw. Übererfüllung der gestellten Aufgaben der Wasserwirtschaft der DDR, in Verbindung mit langjähriger Tätigkeit in diesem Bereich. Allerdings war die Höchstverleihungszahl auf 100 Träger jährlich begrenzt. Die Medaille konnte auch nur einmal an ein und dieselbe Person verliehen werden.
Die vergoldtete Medaille mit einem Durchmesser von 30 mm zeigte auf ihrem Avers eine stilisierte Talsperre mit davor aufgeworfenen Wasserwellen. Darüber wölbt sich ein kleiner Lorbeerzweig. Das Revers der Medaille zeigt dagegen unten das kleine Staatswappen der DDR und oben die fünfzeilige Inschrift: FÜR / HERVORRAGENDE / LEISTUNGEN / IN DER / WASSERWIRTSCHAFT. Getragen wurde die Medaille an der linken oberen Brustseite an einer 25 x 13 mm breiten hellblauen Spange, in welcher senkrecht ein 2,5 mm breiter dunkelgrauer Mittelstreifen eingewebt war

Medal for outstanding achievements in water management of the German Democratic Republic

The medal for outstanding achievements in water management of the German Democratic Republic was a state award from the German Democratic Republic (GDR). The medal was instituted on 30 January 1975 in one stage. Their award was for outstanding achievements in socialist competition and the fulfillment or over fulfillment of the tasks of water management in the GDR, in conjunction with many years of work in this area. However, the maximum annual award number was limited to 100 carriers. The medal could be awarded only once to the same person.
The vergoldtete medal with a diameter of 30 mm showed on its obverse a stylized front dam with raised water waves. It bulges a little sprig of laurel. The reverse of the coin, however, shows little below the national emblem of the GDR and above the five-line inscription: FOR / EXCELLENT / SERVICES / IN / WATER. The medal was worn on the upper left chest on a 25 x 13 mm wide light blue bar, which was woven into a 2.5 mm wide vertical dark gray median strip
