Education & Outreach

Westlands Water District actively engages the community with educational activities to increase awareness of water issues and foster relationships with schools and organizations within the District area.


In addition to education outreach opportunities, Westlands awards six scholarships annually to college-bound seniors from local west side high schools in Coalinga, Firebaugh, Lemoore, Mendota, Riverdale and Tranquillity. The winners are selected through an application process and essay. Each winner receives $1,000 paid in their name to the college of their choice.

Tours and Events

As part of its comprehensive water education program, Westlands also hosts interactive tours of the west side and participates in several community events. To enhance the public’s awareness of agricultural and water-related issues, Westlands Water District provides informational presentations. These presentations provide a public service to the community and help establish open communication between Westlands and local schools and organizations.


Westlands provides the following presentations as resources for our water users and the community at-large.
