William Waterway

William Waterway was raised on an organic farm in a river valley once heavily occupied by the Lenni Lenape. Discovery of Lenape artifacts while working the farm was commonplace. He is an award-winning author, poet, and Native American flutist. While in college he investigated fish kills and industrial pollution, and had industries indicted by Federal Grand Juries based on his research techniques. After college he worked as Senior Environmental Analyst for the city of Newark. He resigned from Newark to live outside for two-years on a horseback trek across America entitled RIDE FOR NATURE.
William founded Martha’s Vineyard’s first State-Certified water testing laboratory, and Vineyard Environmental Research, Inst. His water research has been featured in the documentary film, “FLOW”, For Love Of Water,” and in stories by: 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 the founder of "Martha’s Vineyard Magazine" and "Nantucket Magazine"; author of "The History of Wind Power on Martha’s Vineyard"; "The Holy Order of Water, Healing Earth’s Waters and Ourselves"; and publisher of the United Nations’ affiliated, "Water Voices from Around The World". Recently William was published as one of the authors in National Geographic’s new book, "Written In Water, Messages of Hope For Earth's Most Precious Resource" – this book was selected as one of the top ten books in the world for reading by the 2010 “Billionaires Book Club.”
William’s water and flute research have taken him to over 15 countries as he continues to seek the connection of the Native American Flute with water.
