Grease Interceptors & Traps

The District’s grease interceptor program began in February of 1976 with the passing of grease interceptor requirements in the Lake County Sanitation District Sewer Use Ordinance. The Ordinance requires installation of grease interceptors in all food service and restaurant establishments. Additionally, the Ordinance established maintenance requirements, as well as discharge limitations for fats, oil and grease of 100 mg/L (milligrams per liter).
