Posted: Wednesday, June 28, 2023

COSTA MESA, Calif.; June 30, 2023 — Residents and businesses in Mesa Water District’s (Mesa Water®) service area can be confident that their water is safe, according to the 2023 Water Quality Report (Report), which confirms the district’s local groundwater supplies meet all stringent state and federal drinking water regulations.

“Pure, plentiful and affordable water is fundamental to our quality of life, and key to the economic development of our community,” says Shawn Dewane, Mesa Water Board Vice President. “We consider it a great responsibility to provide reliable, safe water and our customers can rest assured that their water is of the highest quality. Mesa Water conducts more than 30,000 water quality tests each year to ensure our water meets all rigorous drinking water standards.”

The annual Water Quality Report provides valuable information about the district’s water sources. About 80% of Mesa Water’s supply comes from the Orange County Groundwater Basin. The remaining 20% is pumped from approximately 1,000 feet below the ground and treated at the state-of-the-art Mesa Water Reliability Facility.

The Report also includes infrastructure updates and water use efficiency tips. Additional water wise tips and rebates can be found at MesaWater.org/BeMesaWaterWise.
