Grease Interceptor Installation

All grease interceptors and traps must meet sizing requirements, construction standards and conform to Special District and the sewer use ordinance requirements, plumbing, and building codes. The District suggests that the following information be discussed with Lake County Special Districts and your County (or City) Building Department PRIOR to installation:

  • Proposed interceptor location
  • Proposed size of grease interceptor
  • Detailed drawing of interceptor and piping
  • Number and type of fixtures proposed to be attached

The District suggests consulting with or hiring a licensed plumbing contractor to ensure proper sizing, and installation "the first time" and avoiding the risk of improper installation.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please feel free to contact the Lake County Special Districts Administration at 707-263-0119.
