Purpose and History

Since its inception in 1953, Martin Water Laboratory has served the Permian Basin and surrounding areas with all its water analytical needs with precision, dedication and honest results. Though specializing in water, we provide a variety of other analytical needs ranging from oil, scaling/solids, bacterial studies as well as having one of the largest original formation water records in the Permian Basin dating back to 1950. Beyond the oil patch we offer several types of analysis for residential water wells, home inspections, mortgage requirements, irrigation purposes and livestock use. No matter what your need, we are here to help!
