In 2007, the Llano Estacado UWCD, Permian Basin UWCD, Sandy Land UWCD and South Plains UWCD, created the education cooperative. Spanning approximately 5,000 square miles, the cooperative serves five counties and 12 communities, throughout the four districts.
The education program is designed to deliver public school programs and implement water conservation based activities into the three school districts located in Gaines County. School districts in LEUWCD include Loop ISD with an approximate enrollment of 127 students, Seagraves ISD with an enrollment of 602 students, and Seminole ISD with an enrollment of 2,243 students.
In addition to working with schools in throughout the county, the education coordinator also hosts public workshops and speaks at civic club meetings or other events regarding the Ogallala Aquifer and water conservation.
