(Updated January 8, 2019) Paradise Irrigation District (PID) continues to advises bottled water only for drinking, cooking and brushing teeth

DO NOT drink your tap water. ONLY use bottled water. Bottled water should be used for:

  • all drinking (including baby formula and juice),
  • brushing teeth,
  • making ice,
  • and food preparation.
  • DO NOT try and treat the water yourself. Because of the nature of the potential water contamination, boiling or disinfecting your water will not make it safe to drink.

ADDITIONALLY, UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE:

  • Do not allow pets or livestock to consume tap water.
  • Limit use of hot water.
  • Limit shower time (use lukewarm water and ventilate area).
  • Use a dishwasher to wash dishes and use air dry setting.
  • Wash clothing in cold water.
  • Do not take baths.
  • Do not use hot tubs or swimming pools.

Limit use of water for clean-up of properties and follow Butte County recommendations for protective clothing when on property (https://buttecountyrecovers.org/re-entry).

Environmental Impacts, Restoration and Forest Management

Hiking from Parking Area E (between Horseshoe Lake and Monkey Face) along the Yahi Trail to the Diversion Dam to check out the aftermath of the fire that burned through Upper Park. Talk about fire ecology, the particular importance of fire in California's ecosystems, and the balance between fire's destructive powers and its potential for positive impacts. This is a decent hike of a few miles on rugged trails.  Wheelchairs are not advised, and children and parents should be prepared. Bring a snack or a lunch, and some water.

 

Housing, Land-use & Planning

 

The City of Chico deployed traffic counting devices in early December to collect data on the magnitude of traffic related impacts.
