Rutter Hinz Awarded $750,000 (USD) Contract from El Dorado Irrigation District



    DENVER, CO, Nov. 20 /CNW/ - Rutter Inc. (TSX: RUT) is pleased to announce
Rutter Hinz, the Company's engineering and automation arm has been awarded a
services contract by the Eldorado Irrigation District (EID) to provide a
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems (SCADA) upgrade for their
facilities located in Placerville, California.
    "The Placerville facilities are extensive and include a collections
system, a canal system, water treatment plants, wastewater treatment plants
and a power house," said Rick Dmytryshyn, Vice-President, US Business
Development. "What this systems upgrade will enable EID to do is improve their
ability and flexibility to manage these assets. When the upgrade is completed
in the second quarter of 2008, EID personnel will be able to view and operate
any part of the system from any location. As well, centralized communications
between the sub-systems will enable them to consolidate databases including
key performance indicators, centralize further SCADA development and simplify
overall systems maintenance." Dmytryshyn added.
    "We are extremely pleased that our offices in Denver and San Diego were
able to collaborate to provide the knowledge and skill sets EID were expecting
in awarding this contract," said Ryan Hinz, President and CEO of Rutter Hinz
Inc. "These offices have a solid history in municipal water and wastewater
management projects and are key to our overall strategy for greater
diversification within the automation industry. Having the right people and
experience is what enabled our US team to assemble a very competitive value
package that we believe will lead to a long-term working relationship between
Rutter Hinz and El Dorado Irrigation District."
