Slide1:  FACTS PRESENTED: TODAY THERE EXISTS … A WORLD-WIDE WELL WATER CRISIS. A MARKET NEED FOR CONSERVATION. A PRACTICAL, AFFORDABLE SOLUTION. A TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITY. WELL WATER CONSERVATION & AVAILABILITY. :  WELL WATER CONSERVATION & AVAILABILITY. THE PROBLEM… THE PROBLEM… :  THE PROBLEM… “The world is on the verge of a water crisis as people fight over ever dwindling supplies…” - Stockholm Water Symposium, 2004 India is at the epicenter of the pump revolution. …smallholder farmers have drilled 23 million tube wells into the saturated strata beneath their fields. But this massive, unregulated expansion of pumps and wells is threatening to suck India dry. "Nobody knows where the tube wells are or who owns them…When the balloon bursts, untold anarchy will be the lot of rural India…” - Tushaar Shah, head of the International Water Management Institute:  India is at the epicenter of the pump revolution. …smallholder farmers have drilled 23 million tube wells into the saturated strata beneath their fields. But this massive, unregulated expansion of pumps and wells is threatening to suck India dry. "Nobody knows where the tube wells are or who owns them…When the balloon bursts, untold anarchy will be the lot of rural India…” - Tushaar Shah, head of the International Water Management Institute THE PROBLEM… THE PROBLEM… …the $600 pumps are bringing short-term prosperity to much of the country, turning India from a land of famine to a major rice exporter in less than a generation. Indian farmers have invested some $12 BILLION in the new pumps, but they constantly have to drill deeper to keep pace with falling water tables. http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn6321-asian-farmers-sucking-the-continent-dry.html :  THE PROBLEM… …the $600 pumps are bringing short-term prosperity to much of the country, turning India from a land of famine to a major rice exporter in less than a generation.

This is especially true in areas of low water availability or high well density. Conserving water also makes financial sense. The cost of making some small lifestyle changes and buying a few water-saving devices is far less expensive than that of redeveloping a well, drilling a deeper well or even drilling another well. -CANADA MINISTRY OF THE ENVIRONMENT, B.C.:  Regardless of the amount of water your well is capable of yielding, it is always good practice to conserve the water you use. This is especially true in areas of low water availability or high well density. Conserving water also makes financial sense. The cost of making some small lifestyle changes and buying a few water-saving devices is far less expensive than that of redeveloping a well, drilling a deeper well or even drilling another well. -CANADA MINISTRY OF THE ENVIRONMENT, B.C. Slide9:  “The accelerating need for safe clean water has driven scarcity and quality concerns, as water use escalates to accommodate industrial expansion and population growth, and by infrastructure requirements, as both established and emerging regions seek to address them.” - 2006 Pentair Annual Report “Top Experts from 140 Countries to Assess Global Progress on Key Water Challenges of the 21st Century.” :  “Top Experts from 140 Countries to Assess Global Progress on Key Water Challenges of the 21st Century.” The high level panel of distinguished experts will discuss climate, water and vulnerability...discuss possible ways forward to prevent vulnerable regions and poor people from even further damage from changed hydrological patterns and decreased quantity and quality of water provided for livelihood and sustainable development. http://www.worldwaterweek.org/ August 08, 2007 — By the Stockholm International Water Institute Slide11:  There are nearly 20 MILLION water wells in the U.S., supplying ground water for public supply, private supply, irrigation, livestock, manufacturing, mining, thermoelectric power and other purposes... Slide12:  The National Ground Water Association has determined that: 47% of the U.S. population depends on ground water for its drinking water supply from either a public source or private well. In the Asia-Pacific region, 32% of the population is ground water dependent. > Europe - 75% > Latin America - 29% > Australia -15% Slide14:  In comparison, there are nearly 20 MILLION individual households served by private wells. These wells are for 41,264 community distribution systems. There are 107,846 community supply wells in the U.S. Slide15:  PRIVATE HOUSEHOLD WELLS CONSTITUTE THE LARGEST SHARE OF WATER WELLS IN THE UNITED STATES. Michigan, with 1,121,075 households served by private water wells, is the largest state market, followed by: Pennsylvania - 978,202 North Carolina - 912,113 New York - 824,342 Florida - 794,557 Slide16:  Irrigation accounts for the largest use of ground water in the U.S. – 49 BILLION GALLONS. Nebraska leads the nation in the number of irrigation wells in use with 69,583. California - 64,423 Texas - 59,955 Arkansas - 35,574 Missouri -10,913 Kansas - 19,124 Florida - 16,376 Slide17:  AN EVER-PRESENT CONSTANT… We Move WATER….

WELLS ARE BEING DUG AT RECORD LEVELS TO SUPPORT DEVELOPMENT AND POPULATION GROWTH WORLD-WIDE. Slide19:  SO THEN WE MUST ASK… ”WITH WATER BEING SO CRITICAL TO OUR DAILY LIVES… …HOW DO WE EASILY & AFFORDABLY MONITOR OUR WELL-WATER LEVELS?” Slide20:  SIMILARLY, THEN… WHY DO WE NEED A GAS GAUGE FOR OUR VEHICLES? Slide21:  PEACE OF MIND. ANSWER: Slide22:  SO THEN WE MUST ASK… WITH WATER BEING SO CRITICAL TO OUR DAILY LIVES… “ WHAT PRODUCT CAN EASILY AND AFFORDABLY HELP WELL-WATER OWNERS MONITOR, CONSERVE AND EVEN MODIFY WATER USE BEHAVIOR”? Aquapoint.:  Aquapoint. THE WELL-WATER MEAUSUREMENT SOLUTION… :  THE WELL-WATER MEAUSUREMENT SOLUTION… (12) United States Patent (10) Patent No.: US 6,490,919 B2 Bilinski et al. (45) Date of Patent: Dec. 10, 2002 (57) ABSTRACT A well water level sensing apparatus using a pressurized air column in contact with the water at its distal end to derive a correlated value dependant upon the length of the air column which is converted for retrieving stored water levels from memory and displaying the retrieved water levels on a visual display. The water level sensing apparatus may be manually initiated or programmatically controlled for continual monitoring. Slide26:  PROTOTYPED & OPERATIONAL SINCE 2000. PATENTED IN 2002. EASY TO INSTALL. AFFORDABLE. CONTINUOUS, WIRELESS READOUT TO THE HOME. POTENTIAL “CHEMICAL SNIFFER” OPERABILITY. ADVANCED PROTOTYPES UNDER DEVELOPMENT. VIRTUALLY NO U.S. COMPETITION. Aquapoint. Slide27:  OTHER WELL MEASURING METHODS: DEPTH SOUNDER INCONVENIENT. HIGHLY MANUAL OPERATION. NO CONTINUOUS DISPLAY OF WATER LEVEL. CAN BE INACCURATE. WETTED TAPE HIGHLY MANUAL OPERATION. INCONVENIENT. NO CONTINUOUS DISPLAY OF WATER LEVEL. CAN BE INACCURATE. ONLY CAPABLE TO MEASURE UP TO 90 FT DEPTHS. AIR LINE MOST ACCURATE MEASURES DEPTHS UP TO 1028 FEET. http://extension.oregonstate.edu/catalog/pdf/ec/ec1368.pdf (Aquapoint.) Slide28:  can monitor wells via computer and could save the U.S. Government MILLIONS of dollars in manpower hours alone. Aquapoint Slide29:  Consumers or government agencies can now remotely view either by LED readout or via computer, the consumption and/or water available in “FEET” or “GALLONS”. is supported by Windows Software. Aquapoint. Slide30:  IF ANY COUNTRY OR GOVERNMENT AGENCY SO DESIRED… USAGE CAN BE MONITORED CONSERVATION ENFORCED CONSUMPTION FEES COLLECTED? Slide31:  can change the way consumers & governments utilize and CONSERVE their water. Aquapoint.

Slide33:  …The relatively low investment cost of an unit is a natural sell for dealers & plumbers and an easy decision for new & existing home owners alike. Aquapoint Slide34:  Markets were created for more efficient lighting, windows, insulation & thermostats, etc. – Pentair, 2006 USB Water Conference …Similar to the energy crisis of the 70’s, Slide35:  Similar to THAT energy crisis, Today’s water crisis has created a market for a unique CONSERVATION product… Aquapoint. Slide36:  UNITS CAN BE INSTALLED DURING OR AFTER WELL INSTALLS. IN NEW WELLS, DURING WELL REPLACEMENTS OR AS A “BOLT-ON” ENHANCEMENT …ANYTIME Slide37:  …Giving Plumbers, Well Drillers and Distributors alike the opportunity to take more to their BOTTOM LINE. Slide38:  LOW-COST, RELIABLE, EASY TO USE, EASY TO INSTALL. THE ONLY WELL-WATER MONITORING, MANAGEMENT & CONSERVATION SOLUTION FOR CONSUMERS…PERIOD. Slide39:  FACTS PRESENTED: TODAY THERE EXISTS… A WORLD-WIDE WELL WATER CRISIS. A MARKET NEED FOR CONSERVATION. A PRACTICAL, AFFORDABLE SOLUTION. A TREMENDOUS OPPORTUNITY… Slide40:  Aquapoint.
