PARADISE, Calif. - The Paradise Town Council is moving forward with a plan for a wastewater system.

The council voted to pay $1.2 million to HDR Engineering for preliminary engineering and environmental services for the sewer project.

It comes at a critical time, as the town works to rebuild. Town representatives said the water system has been needed for years.

"We need to address our wastewater," Councilwoman Melissa Schuster said. "The topography with the lava cap is creating a problem where our leach fields, especially in downtown commercial areas, are failing. We need to address it and now is absolutely the time."

Schuster said the addition of a sewer system will improve the Paradise economy in the future. State grants will pay for the following project.
