(a) Waste which contains grease shall be discharged into the sanitary sewer system only under the conditions of this ordinance. The following facilities shall install an adequately sized interceptor and provide an inlet-flow control-device inspection port and a grease-interceptor effluent monitoring port:
(1) Every commercial and industrial food-processing and food-service facility as specified in Section 1003.3.1 of the OPC.
(2) Interceptors shall not be required for single-family residences, duplexes, triplexes, quadplexes, apartment complexes, or existing food service facilities where grease traps are not deemed necessary by the County Board of Health, unless there are discharges from the property that may create problems in the sanitary sewer system. The determination shall be made based upon an investigation of the property and a comparison of the content and amount of discharge from the property with the discharges of other properties similar in size and use. Upon a determination that the discharges may create problems in the sanitary sewer system, the City may require the installation of a sufficiently sized grease interceptor to treat the discharges.
