• Triton Stormwater Solutions helps water management systems meet Clean Water Act standards and gain LEED credits

BRIGHTON, MI, Feb. 21, 2008 -- Triton Stormwater Solutions (Triton), a manufacturer of eco-friendly and highly efficient stormwater chambers, entered sales and distribution agreements with Environment 21 and CSIGeoturf. Triton's products are now available in all U.S. states as well as in Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean.

Triton's underground chambers help trap and manage environmentally harmful stormwater and runoff. The chambers are 50 percent stronger but weigh 46 percent less per cubic foot than traditional products and are made from a soy-based resin with a service life of more than 50 years. This environmentally friendly and longer-lasting material can also help facilities earn more LEED credits than traditional products. The LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating system is the U.S. Green Building Council's nationally accepted benchmark for green building.

"Triton meets a need by producing stronger products that are eco-friendly, more cost effective, address the maintenance issues of buried structures and are easier to transport and assemble in the field," said Joe Miskovich, president of the company. "We are excited to announce our relationships with two of the leading distributors in the industry, as they will provide customers with a comprehensive solution to their stormwater management needs." Triton's chambers underwent rigorous independent testing by geotechnological experts to measure strength and capacity and are backed by an industry-leading, 20-year guarantee.

"Environment 21 was impressed with the field test results of Triton's new stormwater chambers," said Jeff Benty, sales and marketing manager of Environment 21. "We feel this partnership will help satisfy our customers, who want next-generation solutions that are efficient and environmentally friendly at the same time." Environment 21, based in Buffalo, N.Y., is the fastest-growing designer and supplier of stormwater treatment and water quality systems in the world. Environment 21's distribution territory includes Ala., Mont., Nev., Ariz., Minn., Iowa, Wisc., Ill., Tex., Ind., N.C., S.C., Ga., Ala., Fla., Maine, Vt., N.H, N.Y., R.I, Conn., Ohio, Penn., N.J., Del., Md., Va., Hawaii, N.D., Wyo., Colo., N.M., La. and Mass.

"The implementation of the Clean Water Act by the EPA has made the management of stormwater and runoff a top-of-mind issue in our industry," said Donn Ellis, president of CSIGeoturf, a leading supplier and manufacturer of geosynthetic and turfgrass solutions. "CSIGeoturf is pleased to offer Triton's products as a solution." CSIGeoturf offers products and services that support erosion control, stormwater management, turf establishment, geosynthetics, and water feature applications. CSIGeoturf's territory is the state of Mich., and Triton retains the territories of Wash., Ore., Calif., Idaho, Utah, S.D., Neb., Kan., Okla., Mo., Ark., Miss., Ky., W.Va., Canada, Mexico, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean.
