Our service is shaped by vision, accountability and transparency

Mesa Water is a leading provider of water, but vision is also on tap.  

We operate and excel by delivering clean, safe and reliable water to our customers by following safe, efficient and cost-effective business practices. We also invest time and energy into the water industry in the spirit of strengthening local resources through participation in committees and on Boards of community, regional and statewide organizations.

Mesa Water is led by a five-member Board of Directors elected by the public. They are responsible for making policies and setting water rates. The strategic plan serves as a guide for determining priorities and making decisions.

Paul E. Shoenberger, P.E. took the helm as General Manager in 2009. He is responsible for overseeing day-to-day operations of Mesa Water. He works to ensure that the organization provides effective operations and excellent service to its customers.

Mesa Water is committed to transparency and fiscal responsibility. It holds AAA bond ratings from both Fitch and Standard & Poor’s, which demonstrate solid financial management and capital planning.

Decades ago, the board set its sights on creating a sustainable, local water supply for its customers. Today, thanks to their vision, innovation and planning, the state-of-the-art Mesa Water Reliability Facility makes us the only Orange County water provider to source 100 percent of our community’s water needs with local groundwater, minimizing dependence on costly imported supplies. Investments in the water delivery system ensure our ability to provide high quality drinking water to customers for generations to come.
