News Releases

APRIL 16, 2001


Businesses involved directly and indirectly with food preparation are encouraged to attend a public informational meeting sponsored by the Department of Environmental Services on a new program to stop grease from clogging city sewer lines. Federal law requires businesses to comply with the city environmental standards to be explained.

Two time slots are scheduled for the meetings on Wednesday, April 25, at Ala Moana Beach Park McCoy Pavilion Dining Room: 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 to
4:30 p.m. The meetings are also recommended for property managers and owners, consultants, plumbers, real estate sale persons and any other businesses that may be affiliated with food preparation.

A Grease Interceptor Compliance Program is required for activities that generate fats, oil and grease. The program is designed to prevent those substances from entering the wastewater system where they accumulate in sewer lines and cause blockages resulting in sewage backups and spills.

The public meeting will explain the Grease Interceptor Plan Review process and compliance requirements of the city's pre-treatment program. A question and answer session will follow. Interested businesses are asked to contact Kenny Drummond, of the Regulatory Control Branch, at (808) 523-4951 or register by e- mailing When making reservations, please indicate how many will attend the morning or afternoon session.
