GLEN EWEN, Saskatchewan, Canada, Feb 26, 2008 -- The people of Glen Ewen are now experiencing the advantage of high quality drinking water flowing from the new biofiltration drinking water treatment plant recently installed by Mainstream Water Solutions, a Saskatchewan-based Company.

Glen Ewen is a typical Saskatchewan community of 120 residents, located 20Km east of Oxbow. The commissioning of the new system allows the village to meet regulatory requirements and the boil water advisory, which has been in place for many years, has now been removed.

The community replaced a water treatment system, which was installed in 1978. Water quality has improved dramatically and the village now meets existing and future planned regulations for water quality.

The new system has been designed to meet current requirements and to provide for a future expansion if needed by adding additional treatment modules.

Features which influenced the village to select Mainstream for their project are Mainstream's effective, simple, and environmentally friendly treatment of the community's well water as well as the affordable capital costs and lower ongoing operating costs.

Jim Burnett, a long time resident of the community, was quoted as saying, "Working with Mainstream has made our job so much easier. We appreciate the service and expertise that the Mainstream team provided through the whole process to the installation and implementation of the system and their ongoing support. Thanks again for helping us achieve our goal of quality, safety and compliance."

With the installation of this system, Mainstream now has eight municipal water treatment systems in full operation in Saskatchewan with an additional seven systems contracted for installation over the next few months in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta.

Bruce Hanson, Vice President of Municipal Biofiltration, says that the Company continues to see a strong interest in its unique water treatment systems. "We have ongoing discussions with dozens of communities across Western Canada concerned with upgrading the quality of their drinking water and we expect to have many further announcements of this nature throughout the balance of this year," Hanson said.
