Fats, oils and grease (FOG) causes many problems in sanitary sewer lines. Fats, oils and grease collect on the sides of pipes and bacteria that feeds on fats, oils and grease produces corrosive acids and gases that will cause damage to pipes and manholes. Sewer blockages that result can overflow onto streets and property, disrupting residential, commercial, and industrial operations, and carry the potential for health risks. The cost of increased maintenance and replacement of sewer lines is high, as well as the potential impacts to the environment. The requirements set forth in this program are designed to aid in the prevention of sanitary sewer blockages and obstructions from contributions and accumulation of animal or vegetable derived fats, oils and grease discharged to the sanitary sewer system from industrial or commercial establishments, particularly food preparation and serving facilities.
