Survey for standing homes

A team from Purdue University and Manhattan College, working on solutions for the water contamination issue following the Camp Fire, has launched an online survey for anyone with a standing home within the burn area.

Thus far, most of the emphasis has been on collecting data from customers in the Paradise Irrigation District, where testing has shown the presence of the known carcinogen benzene, among other chemicals. Wednesday (May 1), the team initiated the survey of all standing homes, including those in other districts and those with private wells. It will gauge such factors as public perception of water safety, individuals’ perceived needs, and messaging from state and local agencies regarding water since the fire.

The survey ( will be open through May 15.
