Water and Wastewater Plant Information
The Town of Yanceyville provides water and sewer services to over 1000 different account holders both inside and outside the Town's corporate limits. In order to supply the water demands of our community, and in turn the wastewater demands, the Town owns and operates a Water Treatment Plant and a Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The Water Treatment Plant is located at 1316 Badgett Sisters Parkway and was constructed in 2001. The Water Treatment Plant obtains surface water from S.R. Farmers Lake and treats the water which is then transferred to two holding tanks that are capable of storing over 1 million gallons of water. The Water Treatment Plant is capable of treating up to 1 million gallons of water a day, and uses the Green Leaf filtration method to treat the waters.
The Wastewater Treatment Plant is located at 666 Pine Drive and was originally constructed in 1967, but was updated in 1996 as the Town increased its wastewater treatment capacity due to growing demands on the system. The Wastewater Treatment Plant is capable of processing .45 million gallons of wastewater a day and is classified as a Sequential Batch Reactor system.
Both the Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants are managed by a third-party contractor, Inframark LLC, an independent, American -Owned company. Inframark is charged with the daily operations and maintenance of the two plants. By contracting with Inframark, the Town is able to see savings in the operation, maintenance, and personnel costs that would be involved if the Town were to provide those resources on its own. If you have questions about the Water or Wastewater Plants, please feel free to contact them.
If you have a question or complaint about your water, please contact either the Town Manager, or the Water Treatment Plant. If you have a question or complaint about your sewer, please contact the Town Manager.

Where does Fats, Oils and Grease Come From?
A byproduct of cooking, fog comes from meat, fats, lard, oil, shortening, butter, margarine, food scraps, sauces and dairy products. When washed down the drain, fog sticks to the insides of sewer pipes. Over time, fog can build up, block entire pipes and lead to serious problems.
Tips for Handling Fats, Oils and Grease
- Separate your fats, oils, and grease and pour into a container and dispose with your solid waste.
- Solidify thin, liquid fats with absorbent materials such as kitty litter or coffee grinds before disposing in the garbage.
- Do not pour down your drains.
- When boiling meats or any fats, cover the drain with paper towels to filter the fats and prevent them from entering your drains.
- Wipe out greasy pots and pans before rinsing.
- Recycle used motor oils. Most service stations will accept up to 5 gallons of used motor oil at no charge.
- Do not dump any oils, grease, or fats into the streets or storm drain.
