• Over 14,000 feet of water distribution mains to be rehabilitated with PuraGuard™

CHESTERFIELD, MO, Dec. 1, 2008 -- Insituform Technologies Inc., through its Canadian subsidiary Insituform Technologies Limited, has been awarded a $4.4 million contract from the City of Victoria in British Columbia, Canada. Insituform will use its PuraGuard™ technology, a close-fit polyethylene solution for water pipe renewal, to rehabilitate 14,750 feet of high-pressure steel pipes, ranging in diameter from 8" to 24."

PuraGuard™ is part of the company's Insituform Blue® line of products for the trenchless rehabilitation of potable water lines. Unlike traditional open cut methods of renewing water pipes, trenchless techniques repair pipelines with little to no digging, disruption or environmental impact.

The City of Victoria has a history of promoting environmentally sound practices. In addition to Insituform's minimally disruptive and environmentally friendly method of rehabilitating transmission mains, the city has also retained a professional arborist to help protect the trees on the job site.

Insituform will rehabilitate an integral part of the city's water transmission system, which is located mostly in residential areas, requiring increased coordination to maintain service to the city and to communicate with residents. "Insituform has rehabilitated sewer lines for the City of Victoria in the past, and we look forward to continuing our productive partnership in the future. We are confident that our customer service and superior water main rehabilitation methods will meet the high standards the City of Victoria has set for us," said Ken Foster, Vice President, Canada.

Insituform will complete the work in Victoria in 26 installations, rehabilitating 13,900 feet of 20," 550 feet of 24" and 300 feet of 8" water lines. Work began in late November and is expected to be completed in August 2009.

Insituform Technologies Inc. is a leading worldwide provider of proprietary technologies and services for rehabilitating sewer, water and other underground piping systems without digging or disruption.
