WestWater Welcomes Zach Bateski as Research Analyst in Fort Collins

Zach Bateski has joined WestWater as research analyst after serving as a 2022 summer associate. Zach recently graduated with a B.S. in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics with a minor in Agricultural Business from Colorado State University in Fort Collins.

Zach says that he has always had a profound interest in water, which is largely due to his love of fly-fishing, “I’m eager to gain experience and knowledge as a Water Resource Economics and Finance Research Analyst in order to effectively aid West Water Research in enabling sustainable water practices through economic consulting.”

Noting his exceptional research on groundwater markets during his time as a summer associate, Clay Landry, WestWater’s Managing Director, adds “We thrilled to add Zach to the team, he will be critical to supply professional analysis and consulting services for our clients.”
