Wells Fargo Grease Interceptors

Year Completed: 2014

Grease interceptors (or "traps") are plumbing devices designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter a wastewater disposal system. Common wastewater contains small amounts of oils which enter into septic tanks and treatment facilities to form a floating scum layer. This scum layer is very slowly digested and broken down by microorganisms, however, very large amounts of oil from food production in kitchens and restaurants can overwhelm the septic tank or treatment facility, causing a release of untreated sewage into the environment. Also, high viscosity fats and cooking greases such as lard solidify when cooled, and can combine with other disposed solids to form blockages in drain pipes.

Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Campus was required to install two 5,000 gallon grease interceptors to comply with local plumbing code regulations.

The work included cutting into the flooring and exterior concrete, creating a trench for the interceptors, piping, and replacing all back to new condition including sod.

So as not to interrupt their daily operations, this work was completed solely on nights and weekends.

We have performed numerous grease interceptor installations within Iowa. Please contact us if you would like a quote.
