Aquacell Water Completes Installation of Six Arsenic Removal Systems for Schools on Navajo Nation

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA--(Marketwire - November 14, 2007) - Aquacell Water, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AQWT), a manufacturer of water treatment products and the exclusive distributor of MetSorb™ titanium-based arsenic removal media, announced today that it has completed the construction and installation of six arsenic removal systems under a contractual agreement with the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).

Aquacell received more than $600,000 for these systems, which represent the first systems completed by Aquacell for the BIA/Navajo Nation. The systems were installed in schools on the Navajo Nation reservation.

The systems, which were installed in schools on the Navajo Nation reservation, are capable of treating over 118 million gallons of drinking water per year. In order to enhance the longevity of the arsenic removal media, pH adjustment systems were included in the project, as well as the construction of buildings to house the arsenic removal systems.

Karen Laustsen, Aquacell's Chief Operating Officer, said, "We consider it a privilege to provide communities across the nation with systems to efficiently and effectively remove arsenic from drinking water and are especially thrilled to be able to remove this harmful contaminant from the drinking water provided to school children."

The Navajo Nation reportedly had 21 public drinking water systems with elevated arsenic levels, exceeding the allowable quantity set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency of 10 parts per billion.
