THE PURPOSE OF MESA WATER DISTRICT (Mesa Water®)
THE SERVICE AREA
Mesa Water® provides water service to 110,000 customers in an 18-square-mile area. The service area includes the City of Costa Mesa, parts of Newport Beach, and some unincorporated sections of Orange County, including the John Wayne Airport.
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Mesa Water® is governed by a five-member Board of Directors. The service area is divided into five divisions. One individual from each division is publicly elected to serve a four-year term as a Director.
The District provides water that is a blend of local ground water. Groundwater, or well water, is pumped from Orange County's natural underground reservoir, or groundwater basin, via Mesa Water's eight wells. Mesa Water® supplements its groundwater with water from the Mesa Water Reliability Facility (MWRF). The MWRF is designed to process amber-colored groundwater from a deep aquifer and was re-opened in January 2013. The facility was completed under budget. The MWRF helps Mesa Water® provide 100 percent of the water is serves from local water supplies, achieving a long-time goal of its Board of Directors.
