PITTSBURGH, Jan. 8, 2004 -- Underground Solutions, Inc. announced that it has successfully installed its first Fusible C900™ PVC waterline installation.

The initial 800 foot run of the project which is located in Center Hill, Florida was an 8 inch diameter Fusible C900™ pressure line installed utilizing a "trenchless" horizontal directional drilling method.

Fusible C900™ and Fusible C905™ PVC are two new patent-pending products recently developed and introduced by Underground Solutions. Both products cover a full range of piping diameters from 4 inch to 48 inch to provide the only available method of installing a continuous, monolithic, gasket-free PVC pipe or conduit capable of being used in numerous trenchless (no-dig) or conventional "open-cut" applications.

Applications for this revolutionary technology cover every aspect of piping installations including both pressure and non-pressure situations in the water, sewer, electrical, industrial and telecommunications industries. According to a recent report by The Freedonia Group, a leading authority on the piping industry, approximately 6 billion feet of plastic pipe is installed by the construction industry each year.

About Underground Solutions:

Underground Solutions has developed and continues to develop unique and practical technologies focused exclusively on the underground infrastructure rehabilitation industry. Total spending on this industry over the next 20 years is projected by the EPA and various agencies to exceed one trillion dollars. UGSI's products developed and successfully introduced into the market to date include Duraliner™, Fusible C900™ and Fusible C905™. To date, the company holds or has pending 13 various patents.

Duraliner™ is a unique patented process which allows the company to replace deteriorated water lines and other pressure pipes with minimal excavation. It is the only pipeline renewal system 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.
