Why should I care about FOG?

Restaurants and food service establishments contribute greatly to the build-up of FOG in the sewer lines because of the amount of grease produced during cooking, food preparation, and kitchen clean-up. If your establishment is found to cause a sanitary sewer overflow because you have not controlled grease discharge, you may be responsible for the clean-up costs, any fines resulting from the discharge, as well as the costs associated with property damage resulting from the spill. Your facility's public image will also be impacted by sewer problems.
