    Fats, Oils, and Grease

    The City of Lynchburg is in the process of developing a program to address fats, oils and grease from food establishments. These products will cling to the walls of sewers and eventually cause blockages and subsequent overflows. Any new food establishment being proposed will be required to install an exterior grease interceptor. Existing establishments being either enlarged or converted to food establishments should also install an exterior grease interceptor. For information on this developing program, you may call the Waste Water Treatment Plant at  434-455-6240.


    Industrial Pretreatment Program

    This program is required by both Federal (40 CFR 403) and state (9VAC25-31-10 et seq.) regulations for various publicly-owned wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs), the Lynchburg Regional WWTP being one. The program is designed to prevent treatment works upset, pass through of the treatment system and protection of sludge quality through the regulation of significant industrial facilities, including categorical industries, which discharge into the sanitary sewer system. Industrial facilities coming under the regulations must apply for and receive a permit from the City of Lynchburg’s Department of Water Resources. Information on obtaining a permit may be obtained by calling the Industrial Monitoring Coordinator at  434-455-6240. 

     
    Below are the City of Lynchburg's City Ordinance and Regulations and Practices documents for your use.
