Paradise, Calif. - The Town of Paradise expects to receive federal funding for a new sewer system, nearly one year after the Camp Fire.

Town leaders tell Action News Now, the USDA has verbally committed $172,000, and the state has pledged $800,000.

Paradise town manager Lauren Gill said there is no clear word yet on when that money will be received but is pleased with the news. 

It will cost an estimated $80 million dollars to build a new sewer system. The next step is an environmental impact review, raising further grant money, and then design and construction.

Town leaders share that those residents who will be impacted by a future sewer system will be invited to vote and share their thoughts on possible charges for connecting to the system.
