SEATTLE, WA, Oct. 10, 2011 -- The HaloKlear® Soil Challenge officially came to an end this month with the give-away of a Ford-F-150 truck to Dr. Max Anderson, a retired professor of Environmental Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. Dr. Anderson was chosen at random from participants in the challenge -- all of whom provided a testimonial noting that they could not find a soil that wasn't treatable by the HaloKlear stormwater treatment product.

The HaloKlear Soil Challenge put forth a challenge to the industry to locate a construction site soil that did not work with HaloKlear products. As of the end of the challenge, HaloKlear provided more than 600 test kits to professionals interested in submitting a soil sample and a chance to win the new Ford pickup truck. Not one sample was received that couldn't be treated by HaloKlear products.

Dr. Anderson saw a demonstration of the HaloKlear product at an erosion control conference in Dubuque, Iowa and took a soil sample kit to run a test. "I was interested in seeing how well the product performed," said Dr. Anderson. He ran the test and was impressed with the results. "I was very surprised and pleased to receive a phone call several months later from Eric Rothberg at HaloSource telling me I was the grand prize winner of a new truck." Dr. Anderson is in private consulting for stormwater regulation to construction companies throughout the state of Wisconsin and still teaches part time at the University of Wisconsin.

"We were very pleased to present Dr. Anderson with a new truck for his participation in the HaloKlear Soil Challenge," said Eric Rothberg, Business Director of Environmental Water at HaloKlear. "It is wonderful to see that consultants to the stormwater industry are recognizing the powerful results of the HaloKlear product in the field."

Although the challenge is over, anyone interested in testing their soil should call 888-98-STORM or go to http://haloklear.com/testkit.
