Superior consulting services, since 1993

Our Waterborne Story

Waterborne was established by Patrick (Pat) W. Holden and W. Martin (Marty) Williams  in 1993 with the vision to provide superior consulting services in the areas of environmental science and water resources management,  The company has grown significantly from its original size and boasts a stable staff of highly experienced scientists and engineers.  The company now provides global service in the areas of ecological risk assessment, field studies and data collection, environmental modeling, ecotoxicology and toxicology support, geospatial analysis and data analysis in a variety of business sectors.

Innovation, Growth and Sustainability

Waterborne was bolstered by its founders’ extensive knowledge in agriculture, water resources, and sustainability, and got its start in the heavily regulated area of agro-chemical risk assessment. Building on core services, the company has steadily grown their specialized knowledge about chemical transport, environmental risk, and stewardship to span other markets—such as personal care products, pharmaceuticals and industrial and specialty chemicals.  Our intimate knowledge of regulatory procedures and our reputation as unbiased scientists allows us to anticipate how product registration applications will be received and negotiate accordingly between clients and regulatory agencies.
