(A) Sand and grit traps or other interceptors shall be provided at the owner's expense when they are necessary for the proper handling and control of liquid wastes containing sand and grit in excessive amounts. All such interceptors shall be of a type and capacity approved by the Director of Public Works, and shall be readily and easily accessible for cleaning and inspection. All such interceptors shall be serviced and emptied of their solids contents as required, but not less often than every 30 days, in order to maintain their minimum design capability to intercept grit and sand prior to the discharge of wastewaters to the public sanitary sewer. Failure to comply may result in the implementation of legal enforcement procedures.
(B) Wastes removed from sand and grit interceptors shall not be discharged into the public sanitary sewer. The owner shall be responsible for the sanitary disposal of such wastes.
