LaMalfa Announces FEMA Grant Funding for Paradise Irrigation District
(Paradise, CA) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa issued the following statement after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) awarded $3,440,574 to the Paradise Irrigation District as a result of damage incurred due to the Camp Fire in 2018.
LaMalfa said: “With much of Paradise’s infrastructure damaged or destroyed in the Camp Fire, it’s been a slow process bringing it back into operation. This FEMA funding will assist with restoring Paradise’s water system and bring safe potable water back to residents. I will continue working at the federal level to expedite the recovery process for Paradise and the Ridge.”
“The Paradise Irrigation District is grateful for the federal government’s commitment to rebuilding the Town of Paradise,” said Kevin Phillips, Director of Paradise irrigation District. “The District will be able to use these funds to continue working on getting the water system up and running. Thank you to FEMA and Rep. LaMalfa for making sure water is safe for Paradise residents.”
