(a) On or after the effective date of the ordinance codified in this chapter, an existing facility (except those existing facilities described in Section 1043.03 (b)(2) above), shall be required to install an approved, adequately sized, and properly operated and maintained grease interceptor when any of the following conditions exist:
(1) It is found by the City and/or County Board of Health to be contributing grease in potential quantities sufficient to inhibit sanitary sewer flow or necessitate increased maintenance on the sanitary sewer collection system in order to keep impairments to the main line flow from occurring.
(2) It is remodeling the food preparation or kitchen waste plumbing facilities in such a manner to be subject to a permit issued by the City building department.
(3) It is required by this or other applicable Ordinance to maintain a grease interceptor and is found to be equipped with an undersized grease interceptor as required in Table 1003.3.4.1 of the Ohio Plumbing Code. Such a facility shall, within one year of the effective date of this Ordinance, install an adequately sized grease interceptor in accordance with the specifications of this Ordinance.
(b) New facilities required by the OPC or this ordinance to maintain a grease interceptor shall install such a unit prior to commencement of discharge to the sanitary sewer system.
(c) Any requests for extensions to installation dates must be made in writing to the City and County Board of Health, at least thirty (30) days in advance of the compliance date. The written request shall include the reasons for the facility's failure or inability to comply with the compliance date set forth, the additional time needed to complete the remaining work, and the steps to be taken to avoid future delays. The City and/or County Board of Health shall determine the date for compliance.
