Water Resources

Get to Know Esri's Water Team

Esri’s Water Team has changed a little so I thought it would be good to introduce or reintroduce the team.

We focus on all things water: water utilities (water distribution, wastewater, stormwater, irrigation), water resources and everything in between. We work with colleagues across Esri (solutions, professional services, product and more) to provide the best support for our customers and partners.

Since our team is large, including staff across various divisions at Esri, I’ve decided to provide a few key contacts. We will do our best to answer your questions or connect you with someone who can.
