Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) Reduction Program

The Tahoe City Public Utility District adopted a revised fats, oils and grease (FOG) control program in April 2006. The goal of the program is to reduce the potential for sanitary sewer overflows as a result of wastewater discharges. The District is mandated by the State Water Resources Control Board to develop and enforce a grease control program.

When wastewater contains grease, the hot water and soap used in washing dishes and equipment emulsifies or breaks up the grease, allowing it to flow freely through the sewer. As the wastewater cools, the grease congeals causing backups and overflows of sewage. The spill may occur within a roadway or even in your own home or food service facility. Best management practices help to prevent grease-related overflows, as do grease removal devices such as traps and interceptors.
