Commercial Requirements

Grease/Grit Traps

The City requires some commercial facilities to install and maintain grease or grit traps. These include:

  • Food Service Establishments
  • Commercial Laundries & Laundromats
  • Vehicle Washing Facilities
  • Automotive Repair Facilities

In order to protect the collection system (sanitary sewer) and the wastewater treatment plant, the City has the right to require any commercial facility that it deems necessary to install and maintain grease or grit traps. For more information on grease and grit traps please refer to the City’s Grease Abatement web page.
