Tell Sacramento that Paradise Needs Water!
This petition made change with 5,679 supporters!
The Camp Fire devastated the Paradise community--including the Paradise Irrigation District (PID) system responsible for supplying safe water throughout the town. PID is a "special district" agency, governed by our community for our community's benefit.
Operating the system is expensive—especially considering that more than 95% of the district's annual operating expenses are fixed.
We are asking that the state General Fund provide a $21.69 million one-time appropriation to PID, allocated to PID's operations and maintenance costs over the next three years.
PID has approximately $3 million in reserves it's using to maintain operations during this chaotic time; without the requested one-time appropriation from the State General Fund, PID will be insolvent in less than six months.
Without this funding, our community's water district will not survive. Without water our community cannot survive.
