Can't afford to install a large grease interceptor needed to be in compliance with environmental disposal laws? Help is one the way.

Individuals and businesses involved directly with food service establishments are encouraged to attend a financial assistance and support service provider workshop associated with grease interceptor installation.

The Hawaii Water Environment Association has scheduled two identical workshops on Wednesday, March 21 at the McCoy Pavilion, Main Auditorium at Ala Moana Regional Park. Sessions will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. and 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The workshops are recommended for food establishment owners/operators, engineers, architects, property managers, consultants, plumbers, realtors, landlords and any other businesses that may be affiliated with food preparation activities.

Businesses are currently required to have a Grease Interceptor Compliance Program if their activities generate fats, oils and grease. The program is designed to prevent food waste from entering the wastewater system where it accumulates and causes blockages resulting in sewage backups and spills.

Interested businesses can obtain more information from To reserve a space, please contact Ken Kawahara at (808)523-5377 or e-mail
