Project Description - On Hold due to budgetary constraints
PID’s pipeline on lower Skyway, from Longview Drive to the Skyway Crossroad is predominantly a four-inch steel main. This project will replace that old, smaller main with 12-inch and 8-inch C900 PVC water main.
This project is a priority for the Paradise Fire Department since it will provide significantly higher fire water flow capability.

PID's board considered these alternatives:
Option 1: PID crews construct the project.
Option 2: PID contracts with an outside firm specializing in this type of project.
The PID board approved Option 2 as presented in the 2017/2018 budget.
Benefits to PID and its Customers
Water fire flow capability in this area of Paradise will be increased. This area of Paradise is an integral part of protecting the ridge from wildland fire. The project will also provide fire flow improvement on adjoining streets.
