Keeping Your Sewers Safe From Fats, Oils and Grease

 
California 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.

Link to the TriTAC websiteCalFOG 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).
