Any person, association, partnership or corporation which engages in the operation of a slaughterhouse, fat, offal or other rendering or reduction works or establishment will comply with the following regulations:
Maintain the premises upon which the business is carried on in a sanitary condition at all times. Floors and inside walls must be hosed and cleaned each day and buildings whitewashed at reasonable intervals. Pits and stalls must be kept clean and free from smell at all times. Containers for offal and entrails must be emptied and properly cleansed daily, and all matter, such as offal or entrails, must be burned or disposed of by burial daily.
Each establishment must be equipped and provided with a cesspool of sufficient dimensions to adequately serve its requirements. In no case, however, shall said dimensions be less than 10 feet in depth and 15 feet in diameter. In the event of seepage to the surface of the ground, the cesspool must be emptied. Under no circumstance will raw seepage be allowed to drain into any creek.
