BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - A team of engineering and science professors from Purdue University and Manhattan College has created a survey to better understanding experiences people have had with drinking water in the Camp Fire burn scar.

From Feb. 11-13, the teams from the universities inspected areas damaged areas and visited with water utilities, local, state and federal officials.

One of their major findings was that people living in the burn area lacked much needed building water safety guidance.

The teams found that the large drinking water systems affected are called the Paradise Irrigation District, and Del Oro Water Company systems named Paradise Pines, Lime Saddle Marina, and Magalia. A variety of other public water systems were also impacted as well.

The survey, which will compile the drinking water experiences and needs of people across Butte County who have a standing home in the area affected by Camp Fire, will be open on May 1, 2019.
