The idea to establish an organization which would gather all of the Polish hydrologists together emerged during the XXXIV School of Hydrology meeting, which took place in Mądralin, in May 2006.

The constituent meeting took place in Warsaw, in the headquarters of Institute of Meteorology and Water Management on September 18th 2006. The meeting was attended by 28 hydrologists from all around Poland. The attendees have brought The Founding Committee of the Association of Polish Hydrologists and created the association’s bylaw. Additionally the Board of Executives was chosen and peer tribunal was brought into being.
