PORTLAND, Maine – Nov. 7, 2007 — Hydro International, a leading provider of environmentally sustainable products and innovative solutions that control and treat stormwater, wastewater and combined sewer overflows, today announced that the Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District (MSD) in Missouri has approved Hydro’s Up-Flo™ Filter for use in stormwater management applications in the district.

The district approved the Up-Flo’s use as a stand-alone water quality Best Management Practice for redevelopment and highway project sites of less than 5 acres. Other conditions include a requirement that each unit provide adequate storage for 75 percent of the water quality volume passing through the filter.

The Up-Flo Filter is a high-rate stormwater filtration technology that removes trash, sediments, nutrients, metals and hydrocarbons from stormwater runoff. As the industry’s only fluidized bed upflow filtration technology, the Up-Flo Filter provides a higher level of treatment, a higher rate of filtration, longer life of filter media and a longer maintenance cycle than other filter systems.

The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District’s 525-square-mile area covers 92 municipalities, including the city of St. Louis, in St. Louis County. It serves 1.4 million people and more than 400,000 total accounts.

“We are thrilled with the news that the Up-Flo Filter has received approval for use in the St. Louis MSD,” said Ed Izzo, President of Hydro International’s U.S. Operations. “We’re confident the Up-Flo’s advanced treatment capabilities will meet the district’s rigorous requirements to preserve water quality in the region.”

Hydro representatives will discuss the benefits of the Up-Flo Filter and other leading technologies at the StormCon Workshops St. Louis conference Nov. 29. Hydro will exhibit at the conference at the Renaissance St. Louis Hotel.
