Town of Paradise

The Town of Paradise has completed the Final Paradise Sewer Alternatives Analysis and Feasibility Report, and will present a recommendation from Staff to the Paradise Town Council on July 11th, 2017.  The report recognizes the need for a wastewater solution for the following three reasons:

  1. The Economy: A town cannot survive when businesses close, and new businesses are precluded from operating due to septic issues and failures. 
  2. The Environment:  All septic systems fail eventually, and when they do they cause harm to the surrounding environment and ground water.
  3. The Community: As a bedroom community, Paradise needs good restaurants, shops and small businesses for our community to thrive, and without a sewer, it is difficult to maintain and attract these types of businesses in Town.

This study analyzes different options for providing wastewater collection conveyance, treatment, and disposal (and re-use); as well as the best methods of paying for the selected preferred option.  The staff and report recommendations are listed below:

  1. Select the Direct Connection to the City of Chico Water Pollution Control Plant alternative as the preferred alternative
  2. Commence efforts with the City of Chico to determine with certainty if they are willing to negotiate a regional connection
  3. Defer Special Assessment District Formation until adequate funding has been secured for construction of the selected alternative.
  4. Engage state and federal representatives on project need and alternative grant funding options
  5. Secure additional grant funding for preliminary design and environmental studies

After a 30 day public comment period of the Draft report in March 2017, public input was considered and incorporated into the Final Draft of the Report.  The Staff Recommendation and Final Feasibility Report is available for reivew online at, at the Paradise Town Hall and the Paradise Library.

The Town of Paradise wants to ensure residents within the proposed service area have information about how this project may affect their property, and provide an opportunity to ask questions and learn about potential next steps.

Council Consideration of the Final Report and potential next steps will take place:
