PARADISE, Calif. - The Paradise Irrigation District is continuing to recover and provide clean water for the people living and moving back to the town.

District Manager Kevin Phillips said over 1500 meters in Paradise now have clean drinkable water, crews have recovered 97 percent of the water mains.

Now the district is working towards supporting the rebuild, so far crews have replaced almost one thousand service lines in town.

Phillips said each new property that's built has a brand new line, leaving no question about water quality.

PID recently secured the promised backfill funding that was once jeopardized by Governor Newsom's proposed budget cuts.

Phillips told Action News Now it was a collaborative effort with help from legislators to community members.

"Having that backfill funding for the second year was critical we would've had to make short term decisions that would affect the long term recovery of Paradise itself, but with that funds coming in we're hitting out stride we haven't slowed down on the recovery and I don't think we're going to have to in the future," said Phillips.

Phillips' last day with PID is August 30th.

He will be moving over to the town hall as Paradise's new town manager.

The board will discuss recruiting a new district manager for PID at Wednesday's meeting.
