Explanation

This ordinance amends Title 11, Chapter 1145 - Sewer Use Regulations, of the Columbus City Code.
The proposed amendments allow the use of indoor grease interceptors in food service operations such as restaurants, cafeterias and other facilities where food is prepared without the need for a variance and standardizes the approach to how grease interceptors are sized. Current City Code requires that grease interceptors be located outdoors except with an approved variance and does not provide design standards for sizing. Definitions supporting the use of indoor grease interceptors have been added or modified to agree with the Ohio Administrative Code and the Ohio Plumbing Code.
The proposed amendments clarify that the City has authority to regulate discharges from private storm sewers as well as public storm sewers and expands the City’s authority to allow cost recovery associated with City’s response to illicit discharges that might not result in a sewer blockage. Authority for the Director to allow polluted stormwater discharges to the sanitary sewer from defined areas within qualifying businesses is also provided.
FISCAL IMPACT: No fiscal impact
