It’s not a shrimp… It’s a Water Spirit!
The AWW logo is an aquatic insect called a caddisfly. This particular caddisfly is named Hydropsyche, and is an important member of stream communities throughout Alabama.
The name Hydro-psyche means “Water-Spirit”.
The caddisfly is, therefore, a fitting symbol of the growing “spirit” of involvement, enthusiasm and concern for Alabama’s water resources that citizens have shown through Alabama Water Watch.
