PARADISE, Calif.- The Paradise Irrigation District has issued a warning due to possible contaminants from the Camp Fire.

They say that in an abundance of caution, PID along with the CA Division of Drinking Water has taken water samples.  A state certified laboratory will test for possible contaminants that may have been introduced into the water system as a result of the fire. These water quality tests can take up to two weeks to receive the results.

They are advising that you only use bottled water for:

  • Brushing teeth 

  • Making ice

  • Food preparation 

Additional warnings: 

  • Do not allow pets or livestock to consume tap water

  • Limit use of hot water

  • Limit shower time (use lukewarm water and ventilate area) 

  • Use a dishwasher to wash dishes and use the air-dry setting 

  • Wash clothing in cold water

  • Do not take baths 

  • Do not use hot tubs or swimming pools 

Limit use of water for clean-up of properties and follow Butte County recommendations for protective clothing when on property which you can find HERE.

The District is asking customers to report any noticeable odd smells in the water supply to this number (530)342-3101

Paradise Irrigation District says they will continue testing on a regular basis as our community rebuilds. You can find updates from the Paradise Irrigation District HERE.
