Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) discharged by residential, commercial,
institutional and industrial users present a significant problem
for wastewater collection and treatment systems. FOG can clog municipal
sewer lines and lift stations, causing sanitary system overflows.
FOG also has the potential to disrupt the effective operation of
wastewater treatment plants.
BMP: Collect grease in a container and dispose
of it in the garbage. Grease can also be mixed with an absorbent
such as coffee grounds, used paper towels, or cat litter in a lidded
container and placed in a trash receptacle.
