CHATTANOOGA, TN, Feb. 24, 2006 -- AquaShield Inc. announced Feb. 17 that its Aqua-Filter™ stormwater filtration chamber has been conditionally certified by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP).

The Aqua-Filter chamber is a key component of the Aqua-Filter stormwater filtration system, an in-line system capable of gross contaminant removal and the removal of fine sediments, waterborne hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and nutrients such as phosphorous and nitrogen. Its certification comes on the heels of the NJDEP s certification of AquaShield's Aqua-Swirl™ Concentrator, a hydrodynamic separator which provides a highly effective means for the removal of TSS (course/fine sediment), floating debris, and free oil. The New Jersey Corporation for Advanced Technology (NJCAT) certified both systems based on performance data supplied.

"These certifications are vital to us," stated AquaShield President Kelly Williamson. "Not only can we now offer both hydrodynamic and filtration technologies to end-users in New Jersey, but thanks to TARP (The Technology Acceptance and Reciprocity Partnership), we can offer these solutions to the appropriate constituencies in California, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia as well."

AquaShield Inc. (www.aquashieldinc.com) is dedicated to effective stewardship of the planet's water resources. The company's Aqua-Filter, Aqua-Swirl, and Aqua-Guard™ stormwater treatment systems are internationally recognized as among the most effective in the industry.
