At the City of Lakeland Water Utilities, we’re more than just the hometown utility, we’re a committed community partner and leader. Our outreach and educational programs, initiatives and events reflect the diversity of our customers, employees and the communities we serve.   


Community Outreach Programs

A water conservation, efficiency education, and outreach program can help water consumers make sound choices and preserve water resources for the future. There are lots of ways that the City of Lakeland Water Utilities connects to our customers and community:

  • Hosting the annual drop Savers Poster Contest
  • Participating in the annual Eco-Fest at Munn Park
  • Sending out information in Utility Bill inserts
  • Partnering with UF/IFAS Extension Polk County, Children's Museum, and Lakeland Magic
  • Attending community meetings, career days, and events to give presentations and educate the community throughout the year
  • Hosting water and wastewater treatment plant and Se7en Wetlands tours for community groups and classrooms
  • Hosting Water Conservation lessons at Polk County Schools and clubs

Educational Programs:

Education and outreach are opportunities for us to bring awareness to the many ways we all can help keep our environment thriving. Children can lead the way when they understand how their actions can impact and influence those around them. 

Through presentations, educational videos and materials, and our participation in community events, we demonstrate how the water and wastewater treatment processes work, and the importance of protecting and maintaining our systems.
