Fats, oil and grease were the #1 culprit of sanitary sewer overflows in the early 2000s. We’ve increased compliance with inspections and cleaning programs. Overflows caused by grease are now at an all time low. Yet, large, complex FOG challenges remain.

Speakers will revisit the regulations, discuss new, affordable grease removal technologies, new compliance programs and discuss steps you should take to continue improving your FOG program. Let’s bring an end to fatbergs, even the little ones!

Workshop is co-located with the annual P3S 2018 Conference.
To sign-up go to: MyCWEA.org > Events > P3S Conference > Register Now > From the reg types choose “P3S 2018 Collection Systems FOG Workshop”
