CLEARWATER SOLUTIONS® Inc. was created out of frustrated necessity. CLEARWATER SOLUTIONS® saw a need for a TRUE retro-fit curb inlet filter. Before the creation of the ClearWater BMP, there were only trash basket drop in filters. Yes, they collect trash but they don’t get the real pollutants that adversely affect down stream and ocean life. Also, many of these trash basket systems have scour problems. In other words, the next rain storm that comes along will wash out what they captured during the previous rain storm. Many people thought that a true storm water filtration system could not be built within existing concrete curb inlet systems. Stewart McClure, company President, decided to work on the problem. He came up with a simple working design that is quickly becoming acknowledged as the practical and affordable filtration system accepted in cities throughout the United States. Joe Arthur, company Production Manager and Vice President worked with Stewart McClure adjusting the original design to improve collection rates. After six years of testing and design work, the ClearWater BMP was ready for the storm water market.
