MIRROR SAVINGS PLAN
FOURTH DECLARATION OF AMENDMENT
Pursuant to Section 1.3 of the Ecolab Mirror Savings Plan ("Plan") and
Section 5.1 of the Ecolab Inc. Administrative Document for Non-Qualified Benefit Plans which is incorporated
into the Plan by reference ("Administrative Document"), the Company amends the Plan as set forth below.
1. Subsection (2) of Section 6.1 of the Plan is hereby amended to read as follows:
"(2) HYPOTHETICAL INVESTMENT FUNDS FOR EXECUTIVE DEFERRALS. The Hypothetical
Investment Funds for purposes of the portion of an Executive's Account which is attributable to his Executive
Deferrals shall be those same Investment Funds designated by the Company from time to time under the Savings
Plan. Each Executive (or his Death Beneficiary) may elect, in a manner prescribed by the Administrator from time
to time, one or more Hypothetical Investment Funds in which his Executive Deferrals are deemed to have been
invested for purposes of crediting earnings and losses to the portion of the Executive's Account which is
attributable to Executive Deferrals. The Company may deem an Executive's Executive Deferrals to have been
invested in the Hypothetical Investment Fund elected by the Executive, if any, or may instead, in its sole
discretion, deem such Executive Deferrals to have been invested in one or more Hypothetical Investment Funds
selected by the Company. Earnings on any amounts deemed to have been invested in any Hypothetical
Investment Fund shall be deemed to have been reinvested in such Hypothetical Investment Fund.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, any Executive who is subject to Section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934 may not elect and shall not be deemed to have directed any Executive Deferrals to the Ecolab Stock Fund.
An Executive shall be deemed, on the day prior to becoming subject to
Section 16(b) or at such other time as he is subject to Section 16(b), to have elected to have Executive Deferrals
then deemed to be invested in the Ecolab Stock Fun
