    3/25/1998

        STOCKHOLM, Sweden, March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Gedeon Dagan, a professor in
    the Faculty of Engineering at Tel Aviv University, Israel, has been named the
    1998 recipient of the Stockholm Water Prize, the world's premier award for
    water quality protection.
        Professor Dagan was selected for his pioneering research on the
    relationship between pollutants, subsurface formations, transport processes,
    and groundwater.  This research will lead to the application of effective
    strategies for protecting and restoring groundwater.  Groundwater is a major
    source of drinking water for many of the world's inhabitants and provides
    irrigation for many of the world's farmers.
        The Stockholm Water Prize is awarded annually to a person or organization
    that has contributed significantly toward solving global water environment
    problems.  The Stockholm Water Prize includes a crystal statue and cash award
    of US $150,000.  It will be presented August 13 by His Majesty King Carl XVI
    Gustaf of Sweden during a ceremony at the Stockholm City Hall held in
    conjunction with the Stockholm Water Symposium and the Stockholm Water
    Festival.
        ITT Flygt AB, a unit of ITT Industries, is one of the founders of the
    Stockholm Water Prize.  ITT Industries is also the global sponsor of the
    International Stockholm Junior Water Prize.  The  Junior Water Prize is
    awarded each year to a high school student for outstanding research into water
    quality issues.  Last year, students from eight countries competed for the
    award which was won by Steven Tinnin of Bartlesville, Oklahoma.
        The Stockholm Water Foundation was founded in 1990 by the City of
    Stockholm and a number of Swedish and international organizations.  The
    purpose of the Foundation is to present the Stockholm Water Prize and the
    International Stockholm Junior Water Prize.
