7-38-136  Mobile food trucks.
   (a)   All mobile food trucks shall be equipped with a handwashing sink and a three-compartment sink with a potable water system under pressure. The system shall be of sufficient capacity to furnish enough hot and cold water for food preparation, utensil cleaning and sanitizing, and handwashing in accordance with the requirements of the Department of Health. The water storage tank shall be self-draining and cleaned and flushed once every 24 hours. The water inlet shall be located so that it will not be contaminated by waste discharge, road dust, oil, or grease and it shall be kept capped unless being filled. The water inlet shall be provided with a transition connection of a size or type that will prevent its use for any other service. All water distribution pipes or tubing shall be constructed and installed in accordance with the requirements of the plumbing sections of this Code.
   (b)   A mobile food truck shall be equipped with a permanently installed liquid waste retention tank that is of at least 50 percent larger capacity than the water supply tank. Liquid waste shall be piped in a fixed piping to the liquid waste retention tank. Additionally, all connections on the vehicle for servicing shall be of different size or type than those used for supplying potable water. Liquid waste shall not be discharged from the retention tank when the mobile food vehicle is in motion. The connection between the piping from the sink and the liquid waste tank shall be tight-fitting and comply with the plumbing sections of this Code. The liquid waste tank shall be emptied daily or more often if necessary, and only into a sanitary drainage facility in a manner and place approved by the Department of Health. The liquid waste retention tank shall be located in a separate area from food storage or food-contact surfaces. The liquid waste retention tank connection shall be located lower than the water inlet connection to preclude contamination of the potable water system.
