The Southeastern F.O.G Alliance is a not-for-profit organization that helps provide education and training for Fats, Oils and Grease professionals all across the Southeastern Part of the United States. Fats, Oils and Grease professionals help protect the environment by helping control FOG related sewer spills. The Southeastern F.O.G Alliance has been helping with FOG for over 17 years.
The United States Environmental Protection Agency has set up rules under 40 CRF 403 to implement Clean Water Act requirements to control FOG pollutants that are introduced into the POTWs. As part of this program, EPA has promulgated General Pretreatment Regulations that require establishments of State and Local pretreatment programs to control pollutants which pass through or interfere with the POTW treatment process. One of these requirements is the elimination of interference caused by the discharge of Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) from food service establishments (FSE).
EPA's report shows that sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) identified that "grease from restaurants, homes, and industrial sources are the most common cause of (47%) of reported sewer blockages. Grease is problematic because is solidifies, reduces conveyance capacity, and blocks flow.
The Southeastern F.O.G Alliance focus is to properly educate the public, educate and train F.O.G Inspectors and managers, CODE enforcement, Building and Plumbing inspectors and Environmental groups.
