The OC-44 Imported Water Pipeline Serves Cities of Costa Mesa and Huntington Beach; Flushing is Part of Mesa Water’s Water Quality Testing and System Maintenance Programs
Costa Mesa, Calif.; April 28, 2016 – To ensure high water quality, the Mesa Water District (Mesa Water) crews are flushing water from one of its main pipelines, called the OC-44, in two locations: Canary and Cardinal Drives in Costa Mesa, and Adams Avenue and Ranger Lane in Huntington Beach. The water flushing began yesterday and will conclude later today.
“Flushing a pipeline during a drought is unfortunate timing, nonetheless it is needed to keep water quality high,” said Paul E. Shoenberger, P.E., Mesa Water General Manager. “Mesa Water would prefer to re-use the water in some way but State regulations do not allow us to serve this water.”
