Industrial Pretreatment
The City of Yuba City operates an Industrial Pretreatment Program which is designed to control and eliminate toxic pollutants from entering the local water environment. Toxic pollutants discharged into the sanitary sewer system may interfere, inhibit, or bypass the City owned wastewater treatment facility, endanger the health and safety of wastewater personnel, damage the structural integrity of the City’s Collection (Sewer) System and adversely impact the local environment.

The Pretreatment Program issues industrial waste discharge permits to select businesses and industries, samples and monitors wastewater in the collection (sewer) system, ensuring that businesses and industries are complying with their discharge permit requirements and/or Best Management Practices.  Additional components of the Pretreatment Program include managing the City’s Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) Control Program, as well as the public outreach and education.
