** Workshop is co-located with the P3S19 Conference. Register for Wednesday’s FOG workshop on the P3S19 reg site. Early-bird discount is removed during check-out.

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. Sewer overflows 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 mini-bergs!

This unique workshop is jointly organized by CWEA’s Collection Systems and P3S Committees to demonstrate we are stronger together in water when we work together. This will be a fun day bringing together pretreatment inspectors, engineers and sewer system professionals.

This event is designed for both collection system workers and pretreatment inspectors.
Early bird deadline is January 18th – save $51!

  • Summarize grease trap ordinances
