Business Costs for Non-Compliance

Without the use of gravity grease interceptors or hydro-mechanical units, grease is washed directly into the plumbing system from the kitchen sink or dishwasher. Over time, grease sticks to the inside of the plumbing system, builds up, and eventually blocks the entire pipe. The result can be:

  • Raw sewage overflowing in your restaurant or neighboring businesses
  • Raw sewage overflowing in your parking lot, sidewalk, and street
  • Costs of an expensive and unpleasant cleanup
  • Potential contact with disease-causing organisms
  • Environmental Health Department Violations
  • Retrofit costs
  • Sewer Use Ordinance Violations
  • Loss of customers
