About Us

Urban development pressures, concern for the quality of drinking water supplies, and the effort to connect more people to the river drive most of the Alliance’s activities.

The UWRWA is a 16-county consortioum of local governments, industry, utilities, universities, agriculture and the regional community that exists to improve and protect water quality on a watershed basis in the larger Upper White River Region. Local governments (cities, towns, and counties) are on the front lines of water quality protection, yet are faced with limited financial resources and changing regulatory expectations. We can do much more together than as individual communities to protect our vital water resources and leverage our financial and technical resources.
We are able to make use of our not-for-profit status to sponsor projects that support the needs and goals of all our members. The collective assests of the Alliance lead to an innovative regional approach to understanding and addressing water quality and land use changes.
