How do I know when my property is certified clean of fire debris?

Property owners in the Government Debris removal Program

There are seven stages in the Government Debris Removal Program. After fire debris and ash are removed from your property (stage four), the soil samples and erosion control must still be completed. The last stage is for the State to notify the County that the property is clean. The County then provides a final sign off and notifies the property owner. Visit the Phase II Map located at www.buttecountyrecovers.org/maps to see the stages and track your property.

You will receive a letter in the mail at the address provided on the Right-of-Entry form informing you the property cleanup is complete once the final sign off is done.

The Town of Paradise or Butte County Building Departments will be notified that the property cleanup has been completed and that permits may be issued.


Property owners in the Alternative Debris removal Program

You will receive a letter by e-mail at the address provided in Appendix F of the Alternative Work Plan for your property. The letter will be mailed to you at the address provided if no email is provided. The letter will be sent after Appendix F and the confirmation soil sampling report are reviewed and approved.

The Town of Paradise or Butte County Building Departments will be notified that the property cleanup has been completed and that permits may be issued.

You may also check the status of your property cleanup online by visiting the County’s online permit center at, https://dspermits.buttecounty.net/Search/case.aspx and search choosing your Parcel Number or Address. The status, Property Clean-up Completed indicates the property is clean and ready for building.
