MARTI Selected for Major Arsenic Remediation Project

APEX, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 6, 2007 -- Metals and Arsenic Removal Technology, Inc. (MARTI, was recently awarded a contract by a major engineering firm for a large arsenic remediation project in central Florida. The project involves a former agricultural site that has been documented to have severe arsenic ground contamination over a wide area with measured ground water levels in excess of 400 ppm, an amount which is over 40,000 times higher than the level considered safe by federal standards. Earlier this year, the EPA established a maximum safe arsenic level in potable water of 10 ppb. MARTI's technology was selected over several competing bids as the preferential treatment to address these very high levels of contamination. The joint effort between MARTI and the engineering firm, scheduled to begin in 2Q07, is expected to take up to 24 months to complete, and will represent a substantial achievement for a project of this magnitude.

MARTI is a portfolio company of HydroFlo, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HYRF), and is headquartered in Apex, North Carolina. HydroFlo's core focus is to seek out synergistic acquisitions that will provide capital appreciation and income from its portfolio companies. The mission of HydroFlo, Inc. is to acquire and develop innovative technologies and businesses that will improve the quality of water throughout the world by means of detection, treatment and removal of contaminants.
