Local Agency Management Program Plan 

For Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems

          The Local Agency Management Program (LAMP) is the culmination of the actions required by Assembly Bill 885 (AB 885).  This legislation directed the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) to develop regulations or standards for Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems (OWTS) to be implemented by qualified local agencies.  This LAMP has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the SWRCB'S OWTS Policy.  The OWTS Policy allows local agencies to approve an OWTS, based on a local ordinance.

The purpose of the LAMP is to allow the continue use of OWTS within the jurisdiction of the City of Glendora,as well as permit and regulate alternative OWTS while protecting water quality and public health.  The LAMP is designed to protect groundwater sources and surface water bodies from contamination through the proper design, placement, installation, maintenance, and assessment of individual OWTS.  This plan develops minimum standards for the treatment and ultimate disposal of sewage through the use of an OWTS in the City.

Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) Program

(Food Establishments)


In an effort to prevent the introduction of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) into the County's sanitary sewer system and prevent sewer blockages  that can result in sewage spills, the City has developed a FOG program.

The FOG program is intended to increase the awareness of operators of local food service establishments, and their employees, about measures that they can take to limit or prevent the introduction of fats, oils and grease into the drain and the sanitary sewer system.

Last year, effective September 1, 2009, the City of Glendora established a FOG inspection program.  This program requires that the City of Glendora annually inspect all food establishments to determine that Best Management Practices (BMP's) are followed for FOG control.  In the past the County of Los Angeles had administered the annual inspections

Beginning November 5, 2010 the City of Glendora Building Inspectors will be visiting all food establishments to perform the inspections based on the City's F)G Restaurant Inspection Checklist.  The fee for this annual inspection is $180.00 and will be billed to you after the inspection has been completed. 

Prior to the inspection, please insure that your business meets all of the Best Management Practices listed on the checklist so that a re-inspection is not requried.  If a re-inspection is necessary, an additional $100.00 re-inspection fee will be billed per the City of Glendora Resolution No. 09-44.

If you should have any questions regarding this program, please contact the Building Division at (626) 914-8222 or email Judi Hardy at
