OTTAWA, April 13 /CNW Telbec/ - Clearford Industries Inc. ("Clearford",
TSX-V: CLI) and Touchstone on Lake Muskoka Inc. ("Touchstone",
www.touchstoneonlakemuskoka.com), today announced a right-to-use license
agreement to implement the Small Bore Sewer(TM) (SBS(TM)) wastewater
Touchstone is a $75 million four-season vacation real estate development
on pristine Lake Muskoka. This project will consist of lakeside cottages and
villas, all centred around the Touchstone Lodge, which will include a
restaurant, a spa, an infinity pool and a fitness centre. When choosing a
sewer system for this environmentally sensitive area, it was necessary for
Touchstone to find a solution that offered zero infiltration, purity of
discharge, as well as minimal disruption to the existing landscape; the
SBS(TM) met these criteria, and will be installed in conjunction with a
leading-edge wastewater treatment plant.
"This license agreement enables Touchstone to select an environmentally
superior solution that is ideal for our premium development," said David Kalm,
Vice President of Engineering for Touchstone. "Our Lake Muskoka project will
utilize only the most innovative green methodologies."
"The Clearford method is applicable to the most exclusive developments
within North America, yet is cost-effective as a retro-fit for basic
properties such as trailer parks. Ultimately, the consistent outcome for big
or small developments is to support and implement sustainable and responsible
green infrastructure," stated Bruce Linton, President and CEO of Clearford.
"This type of license agreement is extremely scalable to numerous
applications, as it allows Clearford to enable the developer to implement
Clearford's proven sewer design and technology."
