Public Health

The mission of the Butte County Public Health Department (BCPHD) is to protect the public through promoting individual, community, and environmental health. This is achieved by providing a wide range of services in more than 50 programs including: women and children’s health, communicable and infectious diseases, planning for and responding to disasters, healthy and safe animals, and protecting natural resources while improving the environment.

Public Health Underground Storage Tanks (UST)

The Underground Storage Tank (UST) program applies to owners and operators of USTs used for the storage of hazardous substances. The majority of these USTs contain petroleum products. The purpose of the UST Program is to protect public health, the environment and groundwater. This goal of this program is to ensure that businesses and facilities with ongoing UST operations are properly permitted and meet the monitoring requirements applicable to their type of system. This is accomplished during plan check and inspection activities. Each UST facility is inspected annually.
