Last revised in 2006, the Side Sewer Code and its associated joint SPU/DPD Director’s Rule are being revised in order to clarify existing requirements, address past comments and concerns from stakeholders, and improve City regulatory policies and actions. Major changes in the code include:
- Changes to enforcement language for improved flexibility and consistency with City’s Stormwater Code.
- Changes to Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) program to improve grease pretreatment and restrict use of certain additives and chemicals related to grease pretreatment.
- Changes to requirements for reusing existing side sewers for new developments, including indemnification and construction requirements.
