Did you miss RINO from $15 to $22+ in a week? Another Chinese Water Play is starting to do samething.
TRIT a Water infrastructure play in China, $11.7B allocated in 2009 for Water InfrastructureTRIT says in its SEC filing the spending in water resources, environmental protection and other infrastructure increased 54.5% year to year. The second tranche of central government funding (RMB 130 billion, or $19.1 billion, February 2009) was allocated to rural infrastructure projects such as improving drinking water safety and electric grids and repairing roads (RMB 31.5 billion or $4.6 billion) and to environmental projects (RMB 11 billion or $1.6 billion).
According to the budget plan announced by Ministry of Water Resources, China expects to invest $11.7 billion in 2009 in water resources sectors. China’s central government has allocated $3.8 billion in the first half of 2009. With the projects the central government has approved, this investment will increase to $45 billion in the aggregate over the next 3 years. The projects include mitigation of 6,240 unsafe small and middle-sized reservoirs due to lack of proper maintenance for several years.
Based on the data shown above, we believe that Tri-Tech is likely to continue to grow in 2009 because our business scope includes water resources, flood control and mitigation, water quality monitoring and assessment, municipal water and wastewater management, water reuse, and odor control, all areas that are poised to benefit from China’s infrastructure investment.

China faces widedspread water scarcity, frequent floods in the south and east and droughts in the north and west. The country also suffers serious water pollution which heavily strains the environment. China's water supply is smaller than the United States but is home to approximately five times as many people. It is estimated that 300 million Chinese citizens have no daily access to clean water. Over 700 million Chinese citizens drink water that does not meet current World Health Organization standards. Water usage in China has quintupled since 1949, and almost 90% of underground water in Chinese cities is affected by pollution. In short, China is struggling to procure clean and provide enough potable water for a growing population. As a result of the high population density, the poor ratio of available water supply to demand, and regional imbalances in available water, China faces serious challenges in managing its usable water supply. These challenges in managing water resoures provide Tri-Tech strong growth opportunites in helping to provide usable water, reduce the effects of drought and alleviate flooding. Differentiators Company Strategy Tri-Tech provides customized solutions and integrated technology to Chinese governmental bodies across China. These include extensive monitoring and management expertise following installation. Future strategies include broadening product offerings by extending product lines to upstream and downstream business segments, strengthening research, building alliances with research institutions, diversifying the client base and seeking early entry into new markets. Lines of Service Wastewater and Tail Gas Treatment Tri-Tech's sewage treatment and water recyling technology includes automation and management systems for large cities. This technology allows a city to electronically control the system to react to chemical and other changes. These systems also allow smaller municipalities to reuse and recycle both grey water and industrial waste water. Other services include patented biofiltration odor control systems, chemical scrubbing odor control and process and monitoring for recycling. Water Resource Management Tri-Tech is a leader in drought and flood control through the use of remote terminals that provide multiple levels of data including rainfall measurement and early warnings for small watershed flood hazards. Groundwater is monitored for water quality using remote terminals systems. For water resource use and management, Tri-Tech has developed irrigational and agricultural water conservation systems, a national flood control system and water resource monitoring equipment as well as systems for managing municipal water supplies.
