Costa Mesa, Calif. – Mesa Water District (Mesa Water) invites the public to comment on the 2015 Urban Water Management Plan (Plan) at its June 9th Board meeting at 6:00 p.m. at the District office. Under the state water code, every urban water supplier providing water for municipal purposes to more than 3,000 customers or supplying more than 3,000 acre-feet of water annually, must prepare, adopt, and file an Urban Water Management Plan every five years. Mesa Water provides water service to 110,000 residents.

The final draft Plan is available for review online at or in the District office, located at 1965 Placentia Ave, Costa Mesa CA 92627.

The Plan includes a detailed summary of present and future water resources and demands within Mesa Water’s service area and assesses its water resource needs for a 25-year planning period, in 5-year increments. The demand analysis identifies supply reliability under normal conditions, a single-dry year, and multiple-dry years.

Mesa Water’s Plan updates the 2010 Plan and includes a discussion of Water Service Area and Facilities, Sources and Supplies, Water Use by Customer Type, Demand Management, Reliability, Planned Projects, Water Shortage Contingency Plan, and Recycled Water Use.
