CALGARY, Nov. 16 /CNW/ - Pure Technologies Ltd., TSX-V: PUR, announced today that its subsidiary, Pure Technologies U.S., Inc., Columbia Maryland, has been awarded a contract with the San Diego County Water Authority (SDCWA) for up to USD 888,000. The contract includes the supply and installation of SoundPrint(R) AFO fibre-optic monitoring equipment to monitor an additional 4.2 km of prestressed concrete pipeline, and two years' monitoring and technical support service.
Between March 2006 and February 2009, the Water Authority has installed 79 km of acoustic fiber optic (AFO) cable to monitor wire break activity and to provide critical information on the remaining service life of their pipeline.

SDCWA will be the second water utility in the United States to install AFO throughout their entire prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (PCCP) inventory.
