Paradise, CALIF. - Some customers in the Paradise Irrigation District have had their water cleared for drinking.
Now, they can expect their bill to double.
PID sent out a letter to some customers, informing them that the "Do Not Drink" advisory at their home has been lifted.
The district says it sampled and tested the water quality within the network of water mains, and tests indicated the water meets quality regulatory standards.
Still, those customers should have their water tested on their end to make sure it is safe to drink.
Those same customers will see their bill return to the pre-Camp Fire rate.
PID charges $22/month for sealed customers and $43.98/month for customers who have clean drinking water.
If a customer receives the letter and is not living in the home, PID says to call the district, and the rate will be re-adjusted to the sealed rate.
