How does the Oil and Grease Management Program work?

All non-residential facilities that are required to have and maintain an interceptor or separator must participate in the OGMP in order to send wastewater to the City’s POTW. Through this program, the City monitors that these users are complying with all the requirements of the Sewer Use Ordinance, by maintaining these units to prevent oil and grease from entering the collection system.  

The City will perform an initial inspection of each facility to verify the information submitted in the application and to review the interceptor/separator condition and layout. At random intervals the City will come and inspect each facility for all relevant paperwork and the conditions of the unit. The City will monitor the hauler manifests to ensure compliance with the program. All facilities on the program are required to maintain necessary paperwork onsite and have their units pumped and maintained to the intervals laid out in the Ordinance.
