Corrpro Begins $2.3 Million Project With US Coast Guard in Alaska

CHESTERFIELD, MO, June 15, 2009 – Corrpro Companies, Inc. (“Corrpro”), a subsidiary of Insituform Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ Global Select Market: INSU), announced today that it has begun work on a $2.3 million project for a United States Coast Guard (“USCG”) cargo wharf in Kodiak, Alaska. The project will protect the steel wharf piles from corrosion and consists of over three hundred 270-pound aluminum anodes and coated steel bond bars.

The project will replace an under-performing cathodic protection system and includes the demolition of the existing cathodic protection system as well as structural steel and concrete repairs. New structural steel members will be installed to reinforce the existing steel piles. The entire project will be completed over water and underwater in a region which experiences some of the highest tidal fluctuations in the world.

Corrpro will work under Jay-Brant General Contractors, LLC, a pre-qualified general contractor for the Coast Guard, to complete this project at the USCG Base, Kodiak, the largest active base in the United States. “Jay-Brant is pleased to be able to expand the services we offer to the USCG by providing cathodic protection on the cargo wharf by virtue of our contractual relationship with Corrpro. We have relied upon the professional expertise provided by Corrpro in meeting our obligations to the USCG”, said Chuck Jay, co-owner of Jay-Brant.

“We are pleased to work with Jay-Brant as well as the Coast Guard, “said Bill Larkin, President and CEO of Corrpro. “At the conclusion of this project, the Coast Guard will have a fully-functioning cathodic protection system that protects their steel piles from corrosion. Since 2005, Corrpro has received approximately $45 million in revenue from various branches of the United States government, our largest customer.”

Corrpro anticipates work on the project will be completed by September 2009.
