As the quiet majority, the Patrons of Westland have grave concerns about the management of Westland Irrigation District.

What might we be concerned about? The last time there was a major water project in 1987, the senior water rights holders’ McKay allotment went from 3.5 acre feet to 2.3 acre feet and our cost went up, while Teel, the junior water rights holders as the Limited Water Users, ended up receiving the benefit.
