Walk along the Jones Falls near Pier 6 in Baltimore's Inner Harbor and you're bound to notice an unusual contraption floating in the water. Called the Water Wheel, it's a strange combination of old and new technology that has been collecting and disposing of the Inner Harbor's trash and debris since May 2014. 

Here to discuss its design, function and newfound fame is Adam Lindquist, manager of the Healthy Harbor Initiative at the Waterfront Partnership of Baltimore.

As chief executive officer, John Racanelli leads a team of 600 full and part-time employees and 1,000 volunteers in pursuing the National Aquarium’s mission to inspire conservation of the world’s aquatic treasures. More than 1.5 million people annually visit the Aquarium’s venue in Baltimore, Maryland, while millions more are touched by the Aquarium’s education programs, outreach activities, social media campaigns and conservation initiatives.
