Press Release

District is responding to the drought—in the meantime, cut back on your water use!


Paradise, January 29, 2014: Paradise Irrigation District (PID) is responding to the historically low rainfall by creating a plan to implement conservation—but in the meantime, it’s vital that ridge households cut their water usage now.

PID relies on surface water to supply customer needs. In “normal” weather years, fall and winter’s wet storms help refill Paradise Lake and Magalia Reservoir after a long, thirsty summer. But this year the wet weather hasn’t come and we’re experiencing a drought of historic proportion. 2013 was the driest year on record, resulting in a significant impact to Paradise’s water supply.

This last weekend, the District’s treatment plant output was double what it typically is for winter demand. Water storage is down and even though rain may be in the forecast for this week, it would take a lot of rain to restore the water supply to normal levels for this time of year.

District officials are crafting a plan to implement water reductions district-wide in a fair manner. But ridge residents don’t have to wait—they should conserve water now, by eliminating wasteful water practices—and cutting back on general water use.

For practical and easy-to-implement ideas, go to or call the District at 877-4971.
