Rebuilds - Service Lateral Replacement Project

Potable water is a requirement to receive a certificate of occupancy on a new build. PID is dedicated to doing the work of replacing fire-damaged service laterals so that you have the clean drinking water you need before final inspection.  Contractors are in place to accelerate service lateral replacements in support of rebuild and temporary housing. The contractor will replace up to 650 service laterals by Spring 2020.

Once the service lateral is replaced PID will mail a letter to the owner on file indicating the water-advisory has been lifted for the property. Billing rates will increase from the 21.49 sealed rate back to the appropriate monthly service charge, currently $42.98 per month for residential customers.

Scheduling is based on successful completion of:

  • Slab Inspection for stick-built homes or
  • an approved permit for manufactured homes.

To keep pace with the rebuild efforts in Paradise, we have increased the number of crews working to replace service lateral replacements. This increase in resources means we can ensure you have clean water by the time you request your final occupancy with the Town of Paradise. Due to lack of resources, we are unable to perform service lateral replacements for lots not currently in the rebuild process.
