Watervize empowers small and medium sized agricultural water providers and their water users with truly useful tools.
Watervize was founded in Yuma, Arizona in 2018 by Jack Linke, with the goal of providing enterprise-level seftware tools to small and medium-size irrigation districts who otherwise would not have access to powerful district and water management software.
Our Managing Director
Jack Linke started Watervize in 2018 while still on active duty as a military warrant officer and project officer. He was able to bring his leadership and project management experience into the development and daily operation of Watervize.
Jack currently lives in Stafford, Virginia, serving his nation in the national capitol region while also providing direction and leadership in the development of watervize.
Jack can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
We help irrigation districts meet these challenges by making enterprise-quality software tools available to anyone in irrigation.
