This portion of #NedZero Action Plan was updated: 3Y-03: Implement a Grease Interceptor Policy for Sanitary Sewer

Y. Septic System Inventory #Septic Sec 13-27 of Nederland's municipal code requires sanitary pretreatment. While our FOG (fats, oils, and grease) program is in its infancy, we are constantly trying to improve it and enforce grease trap measures on new commercial construction. Public Works is also aware of possible nutrient loading from marijuana cultivation and works with growers to prevent excess nutrient from being dumped down the sewer. Nitrates and phosphorus have to be removed from waste water because they are very damaging to the environment. updated by: chrispelletier1
