In the title compound, [Co(C10H12NO2)3]·H2O, the CoIII ion is coordinated by three O atoms and three N atoms from three bidentate 2-ethoxy-6-(methyliminomethyl)phenolate ligands in a slightly distorted octahedral environment. The water molecule connects two ligands by O-HO hydrogen bonds. One terminal methyl group is disordered over two positions, with site-occupancy factors of 0.412 (15) and 0.588 (15).
