About

William Waterway Marks investigated fish kills and industrial polluters while in college, successfully having a major industry indicted by a Federal Grand Jury. He worked for one year as Senior Environmental Analyst for the city of Newark before resigning to live outside for two-years while undertaking a 7,500 mile horseback trek across America. He entitled this quixotic trek – “RIDE FOR NATURE”. While riding across America he visited countless water locations, worked on ranches and farms, lived on Native American Reservations, and spoke at universities and other venues.
He founded Martha's Vineyard's first State-Certified water testing laboratory, and Vineyard Environmental Research, Institute. His water research has been featured in National Geographic; CNN; MSNBC; MVTV; CBS; NBC; ABC; NPR; UPI; New Zealand National Radio; AP; New York Times; the Water Encyclopedia; Alternet; Care2.com; MaximsNews, and other media.
He is featured in the "For Love Of Water" film, as well as other films and TV shows, and is the author of essays published in magazines and books such as articles in John Wiley & Sons’ “Water Encyclopedia”; National Geographic's "Written in Water, Messages of Hope For Earth's Most Precious Resource" - and is author of "The Holy Order of Water, Healing Earth's Waters and Ourselves"; editor of the United Nations' affiliated, "Water Voices from Around The World"; author of "The History of Wind Power on Martha's Vineyard", and founder of "Martha's Vineyard Magazine" and "Nantucket Magazine".
Awards include: USEPA's Citizen Activist Award; the "Groundwater Guardian Award", from the Groundwater Foundation; the international “Water Hero Award” from World Water Rescue Foundation; "Ambassador For Peace Award" for his work with the United Nations relative to water, and "2012 Gratitude of the Waters Award."
