This program works to prevent sewer line blockages through education and enforcement of proper FOG management. Approximately 25% of Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) are caused by FOG blockages. SSOs are discharges of raw sewage that can harm both human health and the environment.
Below are links to printed materials, as well as a short video demonstrating Best Management Practices (BMPs) geared toward facilities for FOG management:
- Prevent Blockages in the Sanitary Sewer System
- Properly Maintain Grease Traps and Interceptors to Prevent Introduction into the Sanitary Sewer System
- Grease Trap and Interceptor Maintenance Procedures
- Prevent Fats, Oil, and Grease from Entering Creeks and Streams Through the Storm Drain System
