MARYSVILLE, Calif. - Camp Fire survivors living in FEMA trailers in Marysville said their water is not safe for drinking. 

Multiple residents of Countryside Mobile Home Park have complaints about the quality of water. 

One Camp Fire victim claimed when she and her family moved in, FEMA told them not to drink the water and that the agency would provide them with water. Now, she said FEMA is no longer giving them water. 

One woman who has lived in the park for years said she took the water in to be tested by a state certified lab after hearing from neighbors who were having the same issues. 

The test results came back and the water tested positive for E. coli and fecal matter. 

"When I brought it up with my manager he continuously swears the water is safe," she said. 

The owner of the property said they have the water tested monthly and according to the Yuba County Health Department, it is safe to drink. 

Action News Now contacted FEMA and they took water to the residents who are staying in their trailers, they are also looking into the issue.

A seasonably hot beginning to the workweek for northern California, and hotter weather is in the short term forecast, with very little relief in the long term.
