Town of Paradise Weekly Recovery Update 7-20-22

RECOVERY STORY

Hope: This little word is in the air in Paradise lately. 

And a big reason for that is Habitat for Humanity of Butte County.

So far, Habitat for Humanity has built homes in several Butte County locations: two in Oroville, 31 in Chico, and is completing seven in Paradise this year.

And now, in the wake of the Camp Fire and the need for more affordable homes on the Ridge, they’re ramping up their efforts in Paradise. Their goal? To reach building 10 houses per year for the foreseeable future with a focus on Paradise.

And what—or who—exactly is Habitat for Humanity?

Watch our Community Grow: PID customer count

  • Total Customers: 8,823
  • Active customers: 4,212
  • Properties with cleared water: 4595

PID is nearing the end of its voluntary additional testing period for water quality assurance. Since September 2020, we have taken 1512 water samples and performed close to 80,000 additional tests within our distribution system to ensure water meets or exceeds state water guidelines. Because we continue to find nothing but clean water, we’re excited to announce we will be tapering down our additional testing efforts and resuming standardized state testing.  Look for our annual water quality report this June at https://pidccr.com. See the mapped results of our last two years of testing here: https://pidwater.com/water-quality
