Clean Water America Group Changes Name to U.S. Water Alliance

September 17, 2012

The Clean Water America Alliance has changed its name to the U.S. Water Alliance and formed a new water management network.

“Hello, my name is U.S. Water Alliance,” the Washington, D.C.-based organization, which started four years ago, said in a website statement.

“We’re changing our name but not our game,” Alliance President Ben Grumbles said. “The alliance’s mission -– uniting people and policy for ‘one water’ sustainability --remains the same. Our new name is easier to remember and more closely aligned with the integrated ‘one water’ vision we’re working toward in watersheds and communities across the U.S.”

The 14 groups making up OWM, or the one water management network, include American Rivers, National Association of Water Companies, The Pacific Institute, U.S. Water Alliance and the Western Coalition of Arid States, the alliance said last week.
