Receipt of Compliant Service
Restaurants and other food service establishments are a significant source of Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG). When FOG is not disposed of properly, a thick layer of grease deposit forms inside the drainage pipes, constricting flow and causing spills and flooding. Proper maintenance of your FOG removal device is necessary to protect the public from possible sewer hazards and reduce the costs caused by clogged sewer lines.
Proper Waste Disposal
Fats, Oils, and Grease need to be properly disposed of to minimize the adverse effects FOG can have on the environment and the water systems. To minimize the hazardous effects of FOG, Enviro-Tech Pumping recommends to:
- Use a three-sink dishwashing system, which includes sinks for washing, rinsing, and sanitizing.
- Use water temperatures less than 140 degrees Fahrenheit in all sinks, especially the pre-rinse sink.
- Recycle waste cooking oil.
- Dispose of food waste by recycling and/or solid waste removal.
Below is a summary of rules and regulations pertaining to FOG control as stated by LA Sanitation:
- All food service establishments that discharge grease will be required to obtain an industrial wastewater permit. A one-time $510.00* application fee and annual $350.00* inspection and control fee will be assessed to the FSE.
- All food service establishments will be required to use best management practices (BMPs) to reduce the grease discharged to the sewer system.
- The use of garbage grinders in food service establishments is prohibited unless specifically allowed.
- Any FSE that is known to cause grease-related sewage spills or fails to implement BMPs will be required to install a grease interceptor or a grease trap.
- All new construction of FSEs must include the installation of a grease interceptor.
- All existing FSEs planning a remodel valued at $100,000.00 or more will be required to include the installation of a grease interceptor.
*These fees are current as of July 1st, 2017, and valid until June 30, 2018. They are subject to yearly adjustments on July 1st of each year.
