Fats, Oils, and Grease Work Group
The California Fats, Oils, and Grease work group (Cal FOG)
was formed in 2001 as a result of increased regulatory focus
on FOG-related sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs). The work group
consists of wastewater agency, regulator, consulting firm,
and restaurant and related industry representatives. The focus
of the work group is to utilize collective resources to develop
FOG control tools and to provide technical support and information
to the work group members.
Mission Statement: The purpose of Cal FOG is to build
a coalition of stakeholders among wastewater professionals,
regulatory agencies, restaurant owners and/or associations,
and related industry representatives that strives to prevent,
reduce and mitigate grease related sanitary sewer blockages
and overflows (SSOs) in wastewater collection systems. Toward
this goal, Cal FOG offers information and guidance for implementing
strategic FOG control programs; promotes the proper management
of brown and recyclable yellow grease, and provides a forum
of real world knowledge regarding FOG-related issues.
The work group is formed within Tri-TAC,
a technical advisory committee representing municipal wastewater
management agencies. Tri-TAC members include the California
Association of Sanitation Agencies (CASA), the League of California
Cities, and the California Water Environment Association (CWEA).
