Who is responsible for inspecting my grease trap?
The ultimate responsibility for inspecting your grease trap is the owner/user of the establishment. City of Mt. Juliet personnel perform routine inspections on all known in-ground outside grease trap within its sewer service area; under–the-counter grease traps will be inspected semi-annually, however, these inspections do not alleviate the owner/user of the establishment from the responsibility of inspecting or ensuring the Food Service Establishment’s grease trap is operating and compliant.
