2017 Water Quality Report Shows High Standards for Mesa Water

COSTA MESA, Calif. – Mesa Water District (Mesa Water®) has released its 2017 Water Quality Report (Report) to the public, containing important information about Mesa Water’s drinking water supplies, high standards for water quality, and the state and federal drinking water standards that it outperforms. The Report also provides valuable information about the district’s water supply sources.

Mesa Water® provides 100 percent of its water supplies from local groundwater, with some of that water pumped from deep underground and treated at the district’s state-of-the-art Mesa Water Reliability Facility.

“Mesa Water is committed to providing clean, safe, and reliable water to our customers,” said Mesa Water Board Vice President Jim Atkinson. He continued, “Mesa Water conducts over 30,000 water quality tests each year to ensure our water meets rigorous drinking water standards.”

A notable result from the Report includes no detected lead. Furthermore, the district does not add fluoride to its water supplies.

The 2017 Report also includes tips for being water-wise and instructions for how to check the water meter to detect a leak. Additional water use efficiency information, updates, rebates, and a recommended outdoor watering schedule may be found here.

The full Report can be viewed or downloaded here, is available in print from Mesa Water’s office, or may be requested by This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
