Global Water Technologies demonstrates new pipeline system in 16 Tech

INDIANAPOLIS, February 14, 2016 -- Global Water Technologies (OTC Pink: GWTR) is hosting a demonstation of a new pipeline technnology in the 16 Tech innovation district of Indianapolis this week for a visiting delegation from China and other industry leaders who are attending the Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport (WWETT) show.

The new Tomahawk™ system was developed in Canada by Envirologics Engineering and can be used to rehabilitate aging drinking water pipelines. Aging water infrastructure is a common problem in North America that has received renewed interest after the White House declared a water emergency in Flint, Michigan last month after lead in pipes leached into water supplies. The new technology utilizes a dry process to clean out the build up of such materials and contaminants inside water mains, reline the pipes and return them to service in the same day.

The technoloogy demonstation is being presented in a partnership with Global Water Technologies, Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI), Envirologics and the national Trenchless Technology Center at Louisiana Tech. The visiting China delegation includes representatives from engineering and construction companies and a large municipal water utility that serves 20 million customers. The visit is being coordinated by Dr. Tom Iseley, who is an international expert in underground infrastructure and was recognized in 2015 by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) with its highest award for his more than 40 years of service.

Global Water Technologies and IUPUI have been promoting a "living laboratory" just north of the campus in an area that has been designated by the city as the site of 16 Tech, a planned world-class innovation community that develops and attracts leading tech talent. This demonstration of new water technology is the first of such activities in the area, which is gearing up for major expansion in the next two years.
