Wastewater problems in Paradise are a long way from over, but the foothill town just gained another possible option.
Chico’s City Council Tuesday night said it would not oppose a feasibility study looking into connecting Paradise’s commercial districts to Chico’s sewer system. The option would be one of four.
Paradise, population 26,000, is entirely on septic systems. That may have been fine once upon a time, but small lots, stricter codes and failing leach fields are causing problems, especially in the commercial core.
