Industrial Waste

Industrial Waste

Proper handling and disposal of wastewater is essential to the protection of our environment. The Industrial Waste Control Program regulates industrial waste dischargers in the unincorporated areas of the County of Los Angeles and 37 contract cities.

The Department of Public Works is proposing amendments to Title 20 - Utilities of the Los Angeles County Code to incorporate and consolidate requirements for the control of fats, oils, and greases (FOG) in the sanitary sewer system. The link to the Draft Copy of Proposed Ordinance Amending Title 20 can be found here (PDF, 410 KB) (Updated September 14, 2009 – click here for updated parts). The revision better defines the Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) program as required by the Statewide General Waste Discharge Requirements for Sanitary Sewer Systems. It also revises definitions to conform with the 2007 Uniform Plumbing Code and makes references to the Code of Federal Regulations 40CFR for Environmental Protection.
