Mesa Water Hosts Community Festival to Launch New Water Vending Machine

Free Festival Features Live Entertainment, Games, Prizes, and Local Nonprofits

COSTA MESA, Calif. – Mesa Water District (Mesa Water®), a top-performing public water agency that supplies water to 110,000 residents throughout Costa Mesa and parts of Newport Beach, invites its community to a free family-friendly festival at its headquarters in Costa Mesa. The “I ♥ Mesa Water” festival, to be held on Saturday, September 23 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., will celebrate health, happiness, and community.

The festival will kick off with a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially launch Mesa Water’s new water vending machine. After the ceremony, festival attendees will receive a reuseable water bottle (while supplies last) for a free fill-up of fresh drinking water from Mesa Water’s new water vending machine.

“With Mesa Water’s mission of satisfying our community’s water needs, we are dedicated to engaging with and serving all customers, while also contributing to our community members’ health and happiness,” said Mesa Water Board President Jim Atkinson. “Our new water vending machine is a convenient source of affordable, quality drinking water for our public to enjoy and stay hydrated.”

Alongside Mesa Water, eleven local nonprofits and community organizations will host a booth at the festival to provide activities and giveaways for attendees, while also sharing information about their resources that support health and happiness in the community. To date, participating partners include the following:

Taking place in the parking lot of Mesa Water’s headquarters in Costa Mesa, at 1965 Placentia Avenue, the festival will include live music by VOX DJs, healthy food, a “Chargers Quarterback Toss” for attendees to test their skills, a “Swift Kick Soccer Challenge” game, prizes, face painting, a bubble artist, caricature artist, and more!

With over 30,000 water quality tests conducted annually, Mesa Water serves clean and safe drinking water to its community. The festival’s purpose is to promote Mesa Water’s new water vending machine that provides pure drinking water for much less cost than other water vending machines in the area. For just five cents a gallon, the public can conveniently fill up a one-, three-, or five-gallon bottle with safe drinking water, any day and any time.
