UPDATE 10:19 p.m. - Action News Now spoke with a homeowner who just got the news his water advisory was lifted.

"It's good, I think PID has done a great job. The destruction in paradise is overwhelming, but for them to get water back to us in 8 months, it's not quick, but it's a catastrophe," said Jack Spreen, a Camp Fire survivor.

PARADISE, Calif. -  The Paradise Irrigation District announced Wednesday that the water for a total of 27 businesses and homes is now safe to drink and cook with. 

PID determined this through multiple tests after taking samples of water from the area.

Testers let the water samples stand for 72 hours before analyzing its safety. 

Water quality for these buildings will continue to be monitored by PID. 

A letter was sent to those who are now able to use their water. 

PID commented that it will offer an update on the water's recovery for all of Paradise at the community meeting on July 15 at 6 p.m. in the Paradise Alliance Church. 

PID has a map that shows where water is now safe to drink.
