• Avensys Corporation sells 125 Isco flow meters to be used in the Regional Municipality of York wastewater systems

MONTREAL, PQ, Canada, Feb. 11, 2008 -- Avensys Corporation announced that Avensys Environmental Solutions, a division of its wholly-owned subsidiary Avensys Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of fiber optic components and integrator of instrumentation and turn-key systems for environmental monitoring, received an order for 125 Isco 2100 Series Flow meters to be used in The Regional Municipality of York's wastewater systems in Ontario, Canada. The order is estimated to be worth approximately $500,000 and will be delivered in first the quarter of 2008.

Earth Tech Canada, working on behalf of York Region, will use these flow meters to complete a comprehensive Inflow and Infiltration Assessment. This study will consist of a region-wide analysis of wet and dry weather flows within each of its nine municipalities and on the Regional wastewater system. The main objective of this project is to identify extraneous inflow and infiltration flows in sewer systems that ultimately flow into the Region's wastewater conveyance and treatment facilities and to recommend suitable areas for pilot remediation projects.

The York Region Inflow and Infiltration Project will be a multi-year program, and is the single largest flow monitoring project in Canadian history -- 120 temporary flow monitoring locations, 15 additional rain gauges, with a minimum monitoring period of one year.

Marie-Annick Riel, general manager of Avensys Environmental Solutions commented, "We are very pleased that our Isco Flow meter line has been selected for this study. This sale further strengthens our position as a leading provider of environmental monitoring instrumentation and turnkey solutions in the Canadian marketplace. It is also a tribute to the technical capabilities of the Teledyne Isco line of products which we have been distributing for close to 30 years."
