DEERFIELD BEACH, FL, Mar. 30, 2009 -- Moving Water Industries announced today that the independent engineering assessment of the MWI pumps supplied to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina had been released today by the United States Department of Defense Inspector General's Office. The engineering assessment was prepared by Parsons.

MWI was pleased to learn that this independent review confirmed the findings of previous studies of these pumps and put to rest, once and for all, the baseless assertions by a whistleblower who was supported by the disgraced former U.S. Special Counsel, Scott Bloch, who was fired by the President last December.

The independent review by Parsons concluded that the MWI pumps had been adequately tested for their intended purpose, that there are no immediate vulnerabilities to catastrophic failure with the MWI hydraulic pumps or their supporting systems and that the MWI pumps performed successfully during Hurricanes Gustav and Ike in 2008 by keeping the water levels at the determined safe level for both hurricanes.
