HARRIER ANTIPOLLUTION UNIT RECOMMENDED FOR MANDATED USE ON CALIFORNIA PUBLIC WORKS PROJECT

 HARRIER ANTIPOLLUTION UNIT RECOMMENDED FOR MANDATED USE
 ON CALIFORNIA PUBLIC WORKS PROJECT
 LOS ANGELES, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Harrier Diesel Cleaner(R), a proprietary device produced by Harrier, Inc., (NASDAQ: HARE), an environmental and healthcare technology company, was recommended for mandated use on all diesel-powered, off-road construction and electric generating equipment to be employed in the proposed Cogsell Reservoir Phase II Project in the Angeles National Forest, Los Angeles County, Calif.
 The recommendation was contained in an Environmental Impact Report submitted by the Department of Public Works (DPW) of Los Angeles County, and was based on an air quality analysis by an independent consultant, Michael Brandman Associates, performed late last year. The report has been forwarded to the U.S. Department of Forestry, which is responsible for the three-year dredging project at the national level. The federal agency is expected to rule shortly on the project's implementation.
 Harrier last week demonstrated the HDC system to DPW representatives on a large earth mover powered by a Komatsu diesel engine (Model D375A). Kevin DeVito, Harrier vice president, noted that the emission of primary environmental concern to county officials was exhaust smoke, which provides a visual indication of pollutants emitted. The tests, performed under varying engine load and RPM conditions, showed that dense black smoke from the equipment's exhaust pipe was dramatically reduced when the operator activated the HDC system.
 "If the public project goes forward as expected," DeVito said, "13 off-road vehicles and four large stationary generators will be retrofitted with 37 HDC units at a total price of approximately $210,000. While HDCs have successfully performed in mobile sources in Europe for nearly five years, this would be their first use in the U.S. for this application," he continued.
 The Cogswell project would restore the capacity of the Cogswell Reservoir on the San Gabriel River by removing 5.5 million cubic yards of sediment caused by erosion of the reservoir basin, a condition now threatening the flood control and water conservation operations of the Cogswell Dam. The project further calls for depositing the removed material in a sediment placement site in a nearby canyon.
 The Angeles National Forest is the nation's most heavily used National Forest due to its proximity to the Los Angeles metropolitan area, possessing a diversity of fish and wildlife and providing a rich variety of recreational opportunities.
 The Harrier Diesel Cleaner was named "Best Available Control Technology" (BACT) last year for reducing oxides of nitrogen, carbon dioxide, particulates and smoke in several categories of power generating equipment by the South Coast Air Quality Management District in Southern California.
