Reservoirs, water mains and wells bring water to you
Mesa Water owns and maintains 317 miles of mainlines, 5,139 mainline valves, 3,383 fire hydrants, 2 booster pump stations, 2 storage reservoirs, and 7 groundwater wells. Our Capital Improvement Plan anticipates ongoing improvements and maintenance to the system through well rehabilitation, distribution systems improvements and pipeline integrity testing and improvement. Water mains have an estimated useful life ranging between 65 and 85 years. Testing pipeline integrity uses a combination of destructive and non-destructive testing to maximize and extend the useful life of each pipeline asset, saving customers money and focusing resources on the system improvements needing the most attention.
Mesa Water’s five clear-water wells pump water from 200-600 feet below the surface and provide up to 75 percent of the water needs for Mesa Water’s service area. The two deep-water wells pump water from 1,200 feet below the surface and provide the remaining water needed for Mesa Water customers. The aquifer extends down to 2,000 feet below the surface.
