Nev. Admin. Code § 446.430 - Interceptors for grease

Current through March 28, 2022

1. If used, a grease trap or interceptor must be easily accessible for cleaning and not present a risk of contamination of food, food-contact surfaces, equipment or utensils, including during cleaning or pumping operations. Grease interceptors must be installed at any food establishment which generates grease that enters a sewer system and where deemed necessary by the health authority or sewer utility serving the establishment.
2. An interceptor for grease, rather than a grease trap, must be the preferred method for the interception of grease from a food establishment.
3. When the location of a food establishment, or other mitigating circumstances, makes the installation of a grease interceptor infeasible, the health authority may approve the use of a grease trap.
