       Automation OEM Program and Termination of Joint Venture in India

Quebec City,  May 28,  2013  - (TSXV:  HEO)  - H[2]OInnovation  Inc.  ("H[2]O 
Innovation" or the "Company") announces today that it is now a partner in  the 
Rockwell  Automation   OEM   Program,   part  of   the   Rockwell   Automation 
PartnerNetwork and that it has terminated  the joint venture with its  partner 
in India.

Rockwell Automation OEM Program
The Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork is an elite group of about 80 companies
worldwide that have demonstrated exceptional design, delivery and  innovation. 
H[2]O  Innovation  earned  the  right   to  partner  with  such  world   class 
organization by demonstrating  its ability and  strong knowledge to  integrate 
Rockwell  Automation  knowledge  base  in  control  and  automation  for   its 
custom-built water treatment systems. H[2]O Innovation is currently the  sole 
partner of the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork dedicated to the development
of integrated water treatment solutions.

The Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork  framework offers global  manufacturers 
access to a collaborative network of companies mutually focused on developing,
implementing and  supporting best-in-breed  solutions  to achieve  plant  wide 
optimization, improve machine performance, and meet sustainability objectives.

With the Rockwell Automation OEM  Program, H[2]O Innovation will benefit  from 
the latest innovation and  technology advancements and will  be able to  offer 
its clients competitive  pricing. "Rockwell Automation  is a recognized  world 
leader in  automation  and  power  equipment. With  this  agreement,  we  will 
strengthen our  existing strong  partnership  with Rockwell  Automation,  into 
something more powerful for the  benefit of our customers. H[2]O  Innovation's 
customers present and future,  will be offered a  wider scope of products  and 
expertise for  automation  and  control  equipment  for  their  entire  system 
including water intake,  pre-treatment, distribution  and storage  management. 
Our global  offer will  be enhanced  by  this partnership  to the  benefit  of 
municipal, industrial and commercial end-users. H[2]O Innovation is very proud
to be part of  this select partnership" stated  Frédéric Dugré, President  and 
Chief Executive Officer of H[2]O Innovation.

Termination of the Joint Venture in India
H[2]O Innovation  has decided  to  terminate its  participation in  the  joint 
venture in India, created three (3) years ago under the name H[2]O  Innovation 
India Limited and announced on February 1, 2010. This decision has been taken
since the sales  objectives initially  established have not  been met.  H[2]O 
Innovation India Limited  required a lot  of attention and  resources and  the 
impact on the revenues and earnings of the Company were very insignificant.
