FORT WASHINGTON, PA, October 27, 2005 -- Severn Trent Services announced yesterday it was honored by the U.S. Department of Commerce with its Export Achievement Award and by the U.S. Senate with a Certificate of Recognition. Both awards recognized the company for its work in successfully marketing its products and services in other countries.

The Export Achievement Award was given to the company for successfully entering at least one new market internationally with one of its products. The Department of Commerce cited the company's success in marketing its ClorTec™ on-site sodium hypochlorite generating system in the United Arab Emirates and the TETRA® SAF™ submerged aerated biological filtration system in China.

The ClorTec on-site sodium hypochlorite generating system is the most widely used hypochlorite generating system in the United States. The use of liquid sodium hypochlorite is increasing due to safety concerns associated with the use, storage and transportation of chlorine gas, the most common form of water and wastewater disinfection.

Severn Trent Services offers the TETRA SAF as a simplified alternative to other fixed-film biological processes such as BAF, MBBR, and RBCs. SAF can be used for either secondary or tertiary treatment in retrofit or new-construction wastewater applications.

The U.S. Senate Certificate of Recognition, awarded by Senator Dianne Feinstein from California, was given to the company for successfully marketing its products and services in Mexico. Senator Feinstein cited the company's provision of membrane filtration solutions to the agricultural, beverage and tourist industries. Severn Trent Services provides its UAT™ line of reverse osmosis, nanofiltration and ultrafiltration systems and technologies to meet tap, brackish and seawater requirements for a variety of municipal and industrial applications.
