Clean Waterways deploys new technology and a scientific approach to restore and protect our greatest resource – the water. Sustainable and efficient, Clean Waterways’ efforts benefit the ecology and our water dependent communities by bringing policy, innovation, and local participation together to solve what Floridians have identified as the greatest threat to our local way of life.
Nature can be fully saved through a commitment from our community
We need a better strategy to restore our waterways – from lakes and rivers, to coastal canals and estuaries. Despite tough governmental regulations today, increasing population, industry, farmers and failing infrastructure have to led to destructive levels of bacteria, fertilizer and other chemicals in our waterways. This is causing significant damage to our barrier reef system, and destroying sea grasses vital to manatees and aquatic life. Relying on tides to clean and transport pollutants from our waterways can not be a strategy anymore. Perennial algae blooms and the hastening destruction of our aquatic ecosystems have shown this policy to be a failure.
Clean Waterways’ systems and technology incorporate proprietary, patent-pending components that allow each installation to be adapted for the task at hand – to get bacteria and pollutants out of the water, improve the quality of our waterways, and restore the grasses, oysters and other aquatic life.
This is huge challenge. We must start now.
Measurable results are the name of the game
Our inland waterways and aquatic resources are at a tipping point. We have built something that helps our communities to protect what makes Florida special.Dr. Charles GregoryChief Science Officer
