Industry expert Dr. David Gruber started the environmental consulting firm in response to an increasing demand for expertise in aquatic toxicology and risk assessment. BMI’s highly academically trained scientists work meticulously with clients to create practical solutions to their environmental problems.

Since its founding, BMI has maintained a commitment to research and development of aquatic biomonitoring and toxicological concepts, which has resulted in leading edge technologies and applications. Key personnel at BMI have published numerous book chapters and papers in peer-reviewed journals, presented papers and seminars at regional and national meetings, and have been invited to review manuscripts and grant proposals in the fields of aquatic toxicology, ecology and biomonitoring.

What sets BMI apart from other firms are the specialized scientists who successfully bridge the gap between a company’s issue at hand and their desired end result. BMI measures their success by the satisfaction of clients and takes pride in a job well done.

BMI takes a hands-on approach with customers by interacting with regulatory agencies on their behalf to solve specific environmental problems associated with water quality and toxicological regulations. Another bonus for their customers is the mobile laboratory that facilitates on-site testing.


David Gruber, President and Owner, says “Working with our customers and helping them find solutions to their water issues, is the most exciting part. BMI is always providing the best solution possible for them.”
