FOG program

The purpose of the PCWASA Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) program is to assist in the prevention of sanitary sewer backups and overflows from occurring within the wastewater collection system through management of commercial and residential generated FOG. These FOG prevention management tasks are administered by the PCWASA Technical Support Coordinator, and the process includes plan review, installation approval, and inspection of grease traps, grease interceptors, oil-water separators, and sand interceptors.

The FOG Program at PCWASA ensures that restaurants, schools, hair salons, pet grooming salons, car wash facilities, automotive repair facilities, oil change facilities, etc. are in compliance with the PCWASA Sewer Use Ordinance.

In addition, the Technical Support Coordinator is responsible for educating the local public and PCWASA residential, commercial, and industrial customers about methods and practices for preventing FOG from entering into the wastewater collection system.
