Three years ago, I was part of the LLDA Technical Working Group (TWG) for the development of effluent standards for the industry. The point of the TWG was to develop specific effluent standards applicable to the quick serve restaurant. I am not sure if such standards were really developed. BOD of 1000 mg/L has been common among QSR and other restaurant establishment, but the point is efforts within the facilities must be implemented or any means of pollution prevention must be integrated in the system prior to final discharge. The QSR group is lobbying for raising the lowering the effluent standard from 50 mg/L BOD to 500 mg/L BOD. Since it is more than three years and I have no communication with the people involved in the TWG, I am not sure what progress has been made.
