What is the criterion for grease trap/interceptor inspections?
All FSE located within Cedar City Utah are on an inspection schedule. All kitchen facility operations are different; so one standard can't be used to determine GRD size and/or cleaning frequency. The grease trap/interceptor shall be inspected using the following criteria:

• If the trap/interceptor is in good condition, you will be advised to keep an eye on the maintenance schedule and kitchen operations.

• If a trap/interceptor is found in fair condition you may be issued a non-compliance order, and/or formal letter of Non-Compliance. To this point the CCRWTF may require an increase in related cleaning frequency and/or improve your BMP (best management practices) policy for kitchen operations.

• If the trap/interceptor is found in poor condition you will be issued a non-compliance order to have the grease removal device cleaned immediately and, immediate measures to prevent a future re-occurrence shall be enabled. The CCRWTF may require the removal on grand fathered under the sink trap, and require the installation of a minimum 500-gallon in ground grease interceptor. As well, the CCRWTF may impose penalties, and/or fines at this level of enforcement. The facility will also have 30 days to submit invoices of cleaning as proof of corrective action to the CCRWTF.
