• Substantial amount of water to be conserved and reused

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA, Aug. 22, 2007 -- Worrell Water Technologies LLC ("WWT") announces that the Esalen Institute ("Esalen") has selected the newest generation Living Machine wastewater treatment system for its Big Sur, California facility. WWT is partnering with Integrated Water Services Inc. ("IWS") of Avon, Colorado for the onsite construction of the 7,000 gallons per day Living Machine.

WWT's patented Living Machines are ecological wastewater treatment systems that utilize natural processes operating in wetland environments and enhance these processes with hydraulic and computer systems. This family of technologies is designed to treat a wide variety of wastewater for reuse using no chemicals and only a small amount of supplemental energy, while having no odors or exposed water surfaces. The wetland vegetation promotes a complex and stable ecosystem providing nearly complete nitrogen removal and advanced BOD and TSS removal. Water treated by the Living Machine system is ideal for agricultural irrigation, landscaping, or certain industrial processes.

Harry Feinberg, Esalen's Executive Director of Operations, is very pleased with the decision. "We chose the Living Machine over other wastewater treatment systems because of its environmental benefits and the ability it gives us to approach our treatment needs in an integrated way, including the discharge from our laundry facilities. The Living Machine emits less greenhouse gases, consumes less energy, and is aesthetically beautiful. Our ability to reuse the treated effluent is also important and could help us save a substantial amount of water every year."

Founded in 1962, Esalen is a non-profit center for humanistic alternative education devoted to the exploration of human potential and cultural transformation. Esalen continues to offer more than 500 public workshops and seminars a year facilitating personal growth and social change in areas traditionally neglected by mainstream institutions, in a retreat environment where many of the staff live and work in a community setting.

Worrell Water Technologies is a fast-growing, Charlottesville, Virginia company introducing breakthrough, environmentally sustainable, proprietary technologies in the water purification and wastewater treatment industries. WWT designs, engineers and installs ecologically-based wastewater treatment and reclamation systems for a broad spectrum of uses. WWT's Living Machine systems, ranging in size from 2,500 to 200,000 gallons per day, are successfully treating wastewater for communities, institutions, resorts and industrial facilities throughout the United States and abroad.

IWS is a high growth Colorado and California based company which specializes in providing Design-Build services and the construction of onsite water and wastewater systems throughout the Western United States.
