Hair Trap Program

Any business that has the potential of discharging significant amounts of hair into the sanitary sewer system, such as beauty salons and pet salons, is required to install a hair trap. This is a device that will collect and remove hair prior discharging into the sewer system. Hair that enters the sanitary sewer system created blockages and costly sanitary sewer back-ups. Hair traps are also used to prevent internal piping clogs. These are simple to clean and maintain. Timely maintenance of the hair trap is required.
