Mesa Water Provides Fun-Filled Education to Local Students at Water Festival

More than 7,500 third, fourth, and fifth grade Orange County students –including approximately 600 from Newport-Mesa Unified School District– attended the 23rd annual Children’s Water Education Festival, where Mesa Water District hosted a fun-filled booth including education sessions facilitated by the Discovery Science Foundation. The kids enjoyed learning about local water resources and received Mesa Water® goodies. 

The students also enjoyed painting a “Water is Life” themed mural with Mesa Water partner, Operation Clean Slate, a Costa Mesa-based nonprofit that involves students in the creation of brightly colored murals that beautify school campuses and communities.

The festival, presented by the Orange County Water District (OCWD), Disneyland Resort, National Water Research Institute and the OCWD Groundwater Guardian Team, was held at the scenic Aldrich Park, at University of California, Irvine, on March 27-28. It featured more than 60 organizations, which provided activities, games and workshops for the students.

In supporting the festival, Mesa Water has helped advance the knowledge of over 129,000 local students over the years, and we look forward to many more.
