Massachusetts Community Chooses ZENON for New Iron and Manganese Removal Plant

ZENON Environmental Inc., has been awarded a $3 million contract to build the
largest NSF certified, ultrafiltration, membrane-equipped water treatment
facility in the United States specifically designed for the removal of iron and
ZENON provides advanced membrane products and services for water purification,
wastewater treatment and water recycling.

The Seekonk area has been experiencing high levels of iron and manganese in
their ground water for nearly two decades. After testing a number of treatment
processes, the District chose ZENON's leading technology, the ZeeWeed(R)
membrane filtration system to treat their water supply.

Once completed, the facility will provide 4.3 million gallons per day of clean
drinking water to the community of Seekonk, Massachusetts. The construction of
this treatment plant will be financed with funds made available through the
Commonwealth of Massachusetts Drinking Water State Revolving Fund.

Currently, the Seekonk Water District obtains 95 percent of its water directly
from four active wells and purchases the other 5 percent from a neighboring
water supplier. The District has two other wells that are inactive.
