(KSL News) -- A new push is underway to change the name of Lake Powell.

The Coalition to Rename Lake Powell says the lake isn't a lake at all and they want a correction. They say Lake Powell is really a reservoir.

The group has applied to the U-S Board of Geographic Names requesting that the nation's second-largest artificial lake be known as Glen Canyon Reservoir.
