WHITE PLAINS, NY, Sept. 18, 2008 -- ITT Corporation, a leading provider of pumps and systems for the movement and treatment of water and wastewater, announced that its Flowtronex® Silent Storm pumping system has been chosen to provide irrigation for Al Ruwaya golf course being built in Dubai. ITT's Flowtronex golf irrigation pump systems are already installed at 78 of the top 100 golf courses in the United States.

The 18-hole Al Ruwaya course is part of The Tiger Woods Dubai, a luxury residential development due to open in 2009. The ITT system will supply water to the 7,800-yard course and landscape irrigation systems while providing water flow to streams and lakes around the course.

"It is critical to have highly efficient water flow in desert climates," said John Williamson, president of ITT's Residential & Commercial Water business. "ITT's irrigation pump systems were chosen above other systems for the intelligent, state-of-the-art design of its variable speed water pumping technology."

ITT's variable frequency drive systems are designed to meet the specific needs of golf courses, giving superintendents precision computer control to cover a wide range of pressures and flows. Built of non-corrosive materials including stainless steel piping, marine grade aluminum skid, and nickel aluminum bronze pumps, this system has the capacity to pump 7.2 million gallons of water per day for irrigation and another 21.6 million gallons a day for water features.

ITT Corporation is a diversified high-technology engineering and manufacturing company dedicated to creating more livable environments, enabling communications and providing protection and safety.
