Ford Company "Go Further" Campaign A Water Wheel Powered by the River Helps Clean Baltimore Harbor
"Everyday Heroes" Winner 2015 "Go Further Award" for "Best Use of Technology."
Clearwater Mills LLC. was founded in 2007 with the ambitious goal of stemming the flow of trash into Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. Our founder, John Kellett, worked on the harbor for twenty years where he was confronted on a daily basis with the negative impact the pollution was having on Baltimore’s biggest attraction. He studied the problem, researched the systems available on the market and finding nothing adequate he was inspired to invent a system for tackling it.
Baltimore’s Waterfront Partnership commissioned the Waterwheel Powered Trash Interceptor. It was installed at the mouth of the Jones Falls to address the problem as part of their Healthy Harbor initiative.
