Where does all your water come from? Who makes sure that it’s high-quality, safe, and reliable when it reaches your home? Granbery Studios got to go behind the scenes and learn more about our local water supply while working with Mesa Water.
Mesa Water is an AAA-rated independent special district providing water to businesses and 110,000 residents in an 18-square-mile area. The service area covers most of Costa Mesa, parts of Newport Beach, and some unincorporated areas of Orange County including John Wayne Airport. The water needed for Mesa Water customers comes from an aquifer that extends down to 2,000 feet below the surface. Five clear-water wells pump water from 200-600 feet below the surface and two deep-water wells pump water from 1,200 feet below the surface!
It takes a massive infrastructure to deliver water to this area. Mesa Water owns and maintains 317 miles of mainlines, 5,139 mainline valves, 3,383 fire hydrants, 2 booster pump stations, 3 storage reservoirs, and 7 groundwater wells.
Granbery Studios traveled all around Costa Mesa to explore the various aspects of the agency.
We created stills, video and drone footage of community events, the treatment center facilities and the people who work there to capture the essence of Mesa Water.
Check out this short video we created about the Mesa Water Demonstration Garden at the OC Fair:
Providing water since 1960, Mesa Water wants its customers to know that it is committed to the highest standards for customer service, water awareness and conservation, reliable water delivery and transparency.
Granbery Studios created a large library of images for Mesa Water use. Mesa Water will use these images to help get the word out about what they do and how they do it for a long time to come, in lieu of using off the shelf stock images. These images help show the customer the places and faces of the Mesa Water District.
