Alliance President Joins Water Science and Technology Board

Clean Water America Alliance President Ben Grumbles has been appointed to the National Research Council’s (NRC) Water Science & Technology Board which provides a focal point for studies related to water resources accomplished under the aegis of the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering.  The Board’s objective is to improve the scientific and technological basis for resolving important questions and issues associated with the efficient management and use of water resources.

The 16-member board responds to requests, often from Congress and Federal agencies, on some of the most pressing and contentious issues involving water quantity and quality challenges.  Members serve without compensation, but with the support of a 10-member full time staff in Washington, DC.  More information about the Water Science and Technology Board can be found at http://dels.nas.edu/wstb.  Mr. Grumbles is a former Assistant Administrator for Water at EPA and former director of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality.
