EPA enforcement and pending regulations for sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) triggered an increased focus on SSOs caused by fats, oils, and grease (FOG) for East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) and its seven collection system agencies.

The primary goal of this project was to reduce the incidence of FOG-related SSOs. The objectives were to use multi-agency and public-nongovernmental organization (NGO) partnerships among all groups with interests in preventing FOG-caused SSOs, and to use public-private partnerships as a means to appropriately dispose of collected FOG; to implement an efficient multi-jurisdictional FOG control program; and to establish a local acceptance facility for trucked FOG.
