Seneca Grease Regulations

Improperly designed and maintained grease traps and/or grease interceptors pose a significant threat to the sanitary operation of sewage treatment and disposal systems serving restaurants and other foodservice facilities. Failure to pump/clean grease traps and/or grease interceptors at frequent intervals has resulted in many instances where the flow capacities of the sewage collection systems are greatly reduced or completely obstructed, thereby interrupting service to customers as well as causing sewage spillage damaging the environment. Influents to grease traps and/or grease interceptors are typically very hot and contain extremely high organic loads including grease, oils, fats, and dissolved food particles, as well as detergents and suspended solids. It is therefore imperative that grease traps and/or grease interceptors be properly designed and maintained to minimize the impact of these materials on the treatment capacity of the system.

Restaurant FAQ

What is a grease trap?

A grease trap is a receptacle into which wastewater containing FOG flows through before entering a drainage system. The receptacle is designed to intercept or “trap” the FOG while allowing clear water to escape.

When should I clean my grease trap?

A good rule of thumb for any cleaning schedule is every one to three months. However, in order to determine if it should be one or three, you will need to follow the 1/4th rule. This rule states that once 1/4th of your grease trap has been filled with fats, oils, grease, and solids (FOGS) it is time for a pump out.
