PITTSBURGH, PA, June 1, 2005 -- Calgon Carbon Corp.'s UV Technologies Division has been awarded four contracts for Sentinel® UV Disinfection Systems for controlling Cryptosporidium and other pathogens in drinking water. The systems, valued at about $1.7 million, will be installed later this year or in early 2006 in California (two systems), Guam, and British Columbia, Canada.

For the four projects, Calgon Carbon's UV Technologies Division will supply various sizes of Sentinel systems including Sentinel 18, Sentinel 36 and Sentinel 48 reactors treating flows from below 5 mgd up to 24 mgd.

Commenting on the announcement, James Sullivan, general manager of Calgon Carbon's UV Technologies Division said, "These new contracts demonstrate a growing commitment among water producers to protect their customers from the health threats posed by Cryptosporidium and other pathogens. We believe our rigorous pursuit of validation for our Sentinel reactors was a major factor in procuring these contracts and will continue to give our Sentinel systems an advantage in the UV equipment marketplace."
