April 1, 2004 -- Sutron Corporation has received two significant contracts totaling $1,126,291 to provide expertise, equipment, and software for Flood Recovery and Flood Warning Systems.

A new $881,424 contract from Avensys, a private Canadian corporation representing a consortium that includes Hydro-Québec International, Environment Canada and Canadian Environmental Assistance, is the second award in 2004 to Sutron.

In January the consortium chose Sutron to provide equipment and software for Poland's Hydrological and Meteorological Telemetric Measurement Network, part of the Emergency Flood Recovery Project for Poland.

The new purchase order for 500 additional Dataloggers, 38 Bubbler Systems, 128 Analog Expansion Modems, and 101 SDI Incremental Shaft Encoders brings the sum of Sutron's orders for the Emergency Flood Recovery Project for Poland thus far to $1,609,163. It is expected that future Project contracts will drive Sutron's total over $2,250,000.

Sutron also received a $244,867 contract, jointly funded by Leon County and the City of Tallahassee, to provide a turn-key flood warning system, the Capital Area Flood Warning Network (CAFWN).

The Project, operated by the Northwest Florida Water Management District, will establish the basic infrastructure for real-time rainfall data collection to identify emerging flood conditions and to initiate appropriate emergency management response. The system Sutron will provide includes an RF Radio Path Survey and Licensing, 18 Automatic Rainfall Stations, one Stream Gaging Station, a Base Station with Sutron's Flood Warning Software, installation and commissioning.

Sutron's hydrological and meteorological systems and software collect, store, and transmit data from extreme locales to desktop, laptop and pocket PCs worldwide by satellite, internet, radio and/or telephone. Sutron designs, manufactures, integrates and installs real-time systems for weather, flood, water level and water quality, dams, irrigation, tides/storm surge, and coastal applications.
