Mesa Water’s General Manager, Paul E. Shoenberger, P.E., Discusses District’s Successes With A Local Blogger
Costa Mesa, Calif.; February 6, 2012 – Mesa Water District (Mesa Water) is on track to achieve its Board of Directors’ long-standing vision of becoming self-reliant. Later this year -- due to the Board’s direction and decades of forward planning, well-managed local groundwater sources, recycled water, conservation (also known as water use efficiency), and smart infrastructure investments -- the District will be able to entirely supply local water demand with local water.
When construction is complete on its improved Colored Water Treatment Facility, Mesa Water will be able to meet 100 percent of its customers’ water needs without depending on less reliable and more expensive imported water transported from Northern California or the Colorado River. This rare accomplishment means that Mesa Water customers will no longer be at the mercy of drought or the regulatory and environmental challenges that jeopardize affordable and reliable water deliveries from these distant supply sources. It also means that Mesa Water will gain more local control over its water provision costs, as well as more local control over the quality of the water it provides.
