"City" piece on a proposal by Portland city councilor Orlando Delogu to alter the ordinance governing the amount of animal and vegetable fat businesses can discharge into the city's wastewater. Charles McDowell, director of wastewater services for the Portland Water District, said grease from food is especially likely to clog sewer lines and pumps. PWD ratepayers already pay $35,000 annually to have vegetable and animal fat removed from the surface of water prior to its release into Casco Bay. Delogu said he proposed the ordinance in response to complaints from Steve Barber of Barber Foods of Portland. Details.
