The purpose of this program is to minimize the introduction of fats, oils, and greases into the Clayton County Water Authority (CCWA) wastewater collection system. The main components of the program are the proper sizing, installation, and maintenance of grease interceptors. The administrative and inspection requirements of food service facilities are established herein as well.

IV. Prevent Fats, Oils and Greases (FOG) from damaging your home and the environment
Fats, Oils and Greases (known as FOG in the water industry) are not just bad for your arteries and your waistline; they are bad for sewers too. Sewer overflows and backups can cause health hazards, damage home interiors and threaten the environment. An increasingly common cause of overflows is sewer pipes blocked with grease. Grease gets into the sewer from household drains, as well as from poorly maintained grease traps in restaurants and other businesses.
