FOG Prevention Plan


Fats, Oils & Grease, commonly referred to as “FOG”, are a major concern for wastewater collection systems. When not disposed of properly, they form a thick layer inside sewer lines which constricts flow and places an additional load on treatment plants. This can result in operational difficulties and added treatment costs.  In an effort to work with our patrons and keep operational costs at a minimum, the District is requiring the following:

  • All grease interceptors shall be pumped a minimum of four times per calendar year. This is to ensure that sediment and floating materials do no accumulate and impair the efficiency of the interceptor or enter the wastewater collection system.
  • Existing under the sink grease traps must be cleaned at a sufficient frequency to prevent the pass-through of grease, fats, oil and other food solids to the system.

At the District’s discretion, existing facilities generating FOG may be required to increase their current pumping and/or cleaning schedules or upgrade their existing FOG removal device. A variance request for less frequent pumping/cleaning may be submitted to the District for review after a minimum of one year of verifiable consecutive compliant data at the current pumping frequency. 

All FOG spills are to be reported to the District within 1 hour of detection so that Operations may respond in a prudent manner to ensure the safety of the treatment plant. After hours please call our Emergency Number (208) 290-5979. Thank you!
