Company"; ticker symbols LVG.A and LVG.B) is pleased to announce that over the
past few weeks, the Water Treatment Group has been awarded several large-scale

submerged membrane bioreactors (MBR) to municipalities located in various

upgrade the existing wastewater treatment facility of a refinery located in
Thailand.

stronger activity in the U.S. municipal market, where we are constantly
enhancing our organization to be more competitive and responsive to business
opportunities," indicated Richard Verreault, President and Chief Operating
Officer of GLV. "We are also pursuing our efforts to leverage some of our
technologies and acquire others in order to increase our international
