Water Treatment

Water Treatment Plant

The Water Treatment Plant was originally built in 1969 and treats on average 20 million gallons a day (MGD) of drinking water. In
2005 the plant underwent a major upgrade in capacity from 24MGD to 36MGD. This upgrade included the installation of a new state of the art membrane filtration system. Yuba City’s primary source of water comes from surface water via the Feather River. Yuba City’s low-lift pump station, located at the north end of town, pumps water from the Feather River to the Water Treatment Plant on Northgate Drive.

The State of California has the most stringent water quality standards in the nation. Staff at the Water Treatment Plant work diligently 24hrs a day, 365 days a year to ensure that Yuba City residents are always provided with the highest quality of water.
