Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) in the wastewater business can have negative impacts on wastewater collection and treatment systems. Most wastewater collection system blockages can be traced to FOG. Blockages in the wastewater collection system are serious, causing sewage spills, manhole overflows, or sewage backups in homes and businesses. Wastewater treatment suffers due to the increased oxygen demand at the treatment plant caused by grease and the pass-through of untreated grease to the disposal system.
