Grease/Waste Management

The Grease Management and Backflow Prevention Office of the MWA is staffed by two employees – a grease management and backflow coordinator, along with a grease management inspector.

The Grease Management and Backflow Prevention Coordinator administers the MWA Backflow Prevention and Grease Management Program and directs its daily activities. The Grease Management portion of the office’s responsibility requires grease trap sizing determinations for commercial customers. The position must also write up violations, Planning & Zoning permits, upgrade letters and memos.

The Grease Management Coordinator tracks and monitors grease trap pumping manifests. The Grease Management Coordinator also revises and updates records in the Grease Management & Backflow Prevention databases and manuals, monitors the Grease Management Inspector and inspections, and fills in for the Grease Management Inspector as needed.

The Grease Inspector performs all grease trap and grease interceptor inspections. All grease interceptors and grease traps are inspected once per quarter. The grease management section of the Engineering Department inspects more than 1,000 grease traps every quarter.
