PORTLAND, ORE., Feb. 25, 2004 -- Stormwater Management Inc. has appointed John Meland as Sales Manager for the company's Industrial and Remediation Business Unit.

This newly created position will be dedicated to supporting end-users, engineers, and operations managers in industrial and remediation markets tasked with meeting the stringent standards of the Clean Water Act for treating industrial stormwater discharge.

Meland has more than 13 years of experience in the water treatment equipment industry including several years experience in the design and specification of water purification and recovery systems. Meland holds a degree in chemical engineering from Oregon State University. He will be based in the Pacific Northwest and support existing regional sales management staff to effectively serve industrial customers.

"Industrial companies are faced with the daunting task of responding to the water quality and regulatory needs set forth under the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System," said David Pollock, president of Stormwater Management. "We are pleased to provide a complete lineup of products for this industry, and to have on board a highly experienced sales manager with extensive knowledge of water treatment systems to support our industrial customers."

Meland's appointment closely follows Stormwater Management's introduction of its proprietary Stormwater Management StormFilter® into the industrial marketplace. The StormFilter is an ideal solution for the treatment of polluted water flows created by stormwater runoff. The addition of the position to support industrial customers reflects both market demand and acceptance of the StormFilter in industrial applications.

"I'm excited to join the Industrial and Remediation team at Stormwater Management, and to assist its industrial customers in choosing the best manufactured filtration products for their unique needs," said Meland.

Under the Clean Water Act, heavy and light manufacturing and maintenance facilities must have plans in place to manage stormwater discharges associated with industrial activity. Stormwater Management Inc. has a highly skilled team of experts who can assist individuals tasked with meeting these complex permit requirements by recommending and assisting with design of effective and economical industrial stormwater treatment systems.
