(Feb. 7/12) The City of Edmonton is proposing a new grease trap bylaw that would come into effect June 1, 2013.
What this bylaw means
The City has advised us of three proposed changes that could impact the industry:
- the limit for oil and grease released into the sanitary or combined sewer will be reduced to 500 mg/L from the current 800 mg/L;
- the limit for chlorine released into any sewer will be calculated as “total chlorine” instead of the current “free chlorine;” and
- increase in penalties.
