It is the responsibility of the contractor to schedule a preconstruction meeting with the assigned inspector prior to beginning any water or sewer installation activity.

Grease Management Program
The Grease Management Program is tasked with ensuring that commercial users of the wastewater collection system have properly sized interception capacity and conduct proper maintenance of the interceptor. All new commercial facilities whether a new building or new owners of existing facilities must have their grease trap capacity reviewed before a permit is granted to tie into the collection system. This capacity is determined by the size of the facility as well as the equipment used and menu items served. The Gwinnett County Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) Ordinance contains specific requirements for fats, oils, and grease mitigation. For additional information or questions, please call the Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources at 678.376.6713.
