Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 9.05.010, the 2016 Edition of the California Plumbing Code is hereby amended by:

A.    Adding a new subparagraph 1014.3.8 (Outdoor Location) to Subsection 1014.3.4 (Location) of Chapter 10 (Traps and Interceptors) of the Plumbing Code to read as follows:

1014.3.8 Outdoor Location

Each grease trap shall be on the outside of all structures on the premises and shall be readily accessible for servicing and maintaining the grease trap in working and operation condition. The use of ladders or the removal of bulky equipment in order to service grease traps shall be deemed to be a lack of accessibility. The location of all grease traps in the interior of a building or structure shall be permitted by the building official only when, in his judgment, there is insufficient space on the exterior of a building or structure to install an adequate grease trap. As used herein, the term “adequate grease trap” shall mean a grease trap of sufficient capacity to intercept anticipated quantities of grease generated by a business over at least a twenty-four (24) hour period.
