Home Articles Ready to Serve You During Extreme Weather or a Natural Disaster Ready to Serve You During Extreme Weather or a Natural Disaster Posted: Monday, October 23, 2023 Mesa Water is prepared year-round to provide high-quality water during a power outage, tropical storm or other natural disasters. With the landfall of Tropical Storm Hilary, Mesa Water was ready to meet the needs of our service area. All emergency backup power was tested at the district’s sites prior to the storm to ensure water remained available for customers. Highly-trained staff closely monitored and controlled facilities through Mesa Water’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition system, which can detect loss of power at local and remote facilities. Preparations also included monitoring for the potential need to pump water out of critical infrastructure areas, which can capture rainwater in storms. Water treatment storage tanks and reservoirs were topped off in advance of the storm to ensure we had readily accessible supply. Additionally, Mesa Water had extra staff standing by to respond, if needed, to restore clean, safe water to your home or workplace. Mesa Water employees work continuously to ensure that our infrastructure and systems remain reliable in the event of an emergency – and always.
