COSTA MESA, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Today, the Mesa Water District (Mesa Water) Board of Directors hosted a VIP Mesa Water Reliability Day ceremony, commemorating Mesa Water attaining 100 percent local water reliability, meaning the District is able to serve all of its customers’ water needs with local water supplies. The event took place at the recently improved Mesa Water Reliability Facility (MWRF), which is responsible for increasing the District’s water production to bring Mesa Water to 100 percent local reliability.
“Mesa Water has achieved the long-standing vision of the District’s past and present Board of Directors by becoming 100 percent locally reliable,” said James R. Fisler, President of Mesa Water’s Board of Directors. He continued, “Being able to serve all of its customers’ water needs with local water supplies is a significant and unique achievement for a Southern California water agency, and the largest accomplishment in Mesa Water’s history since its formation in 1960.”
Celebrating the under-budget completion of a two-year improvements project that increased the MWRF’s water treatment capacity, Mesa Water Reliability Day coincided with the National Groundwater Association’s (NGWA) National Groundwater Awareness Week. The MWRF recently received an award from NGWA for groundwater protection. Mesa Water Reliability Day event highlights included:
