What are the most important things for me, the business owner or operator, to know about the FOG program?

The Water Resource Recovery Facility will be performing unscheduled compliance inspections. The important items the Water Resource Recovery Facility will be checking are:

  1. The grease removal device (interior grease trap or exterior grease interceptor) is under 25% full of FOG and solids. This will be done via physical inspection by the Water Resource Recovery Facility staff.
  2. Maintenance records, including accurate measurements, are on-site and available at the request of the inspector. Records must be kept for a period of three years.
  3. Any additional requirements from the official inspection report.
