PITTSBURGH, Oct. 16, 2003 -- Underground Solutions Inc. announced it has opened its first international office in The Hague, Netherlands and hired Michiel Arnoldy as Vice President of Business Development/International.

Arnoldy will be responsible for establishing strategic alliances and implementing the Company's business development plans throughout Europe, Asia and Australia. Formerly Director of Sales for Chemviron Carbon, a subsidiary of US based Calgon Carbon and Asko Nobel, Arnoldy has almost 20 years of international business development experience throughout Europe, South America and Southeast Asia.

"There is a global interest in our Duraliner Structural Water Line Renewal System," stated Mark A. Smith, Underground Solutions' President/CEO. "We have been providing technical and pricing information to numerous municipalities and potential strategic partners in a number of countries and we feel that we are close to completing several international deals. The global water industry is a very close community and word of our "one of a kind" truly structural liner for pressure pipes has spread rapidly."

Duraliner is a process for pipeline renewal resulting in a "stand alone" structural lining capable of handling internal minimum operating pressures of 150 psi with a 3.2 safety factor. Duraliner conforms to NSF 61 Standards for Drinking Water Components/Health Effects.

In addition, Duraliner provides an equivalent design-life of new PVC pipelines (75 to 100 years) thus qualifying the rehabilitated pipe lines to be capitalized as new assets under the rules of GASB Statement 34.
