Pretreatment and HazMat Program

Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG)

In an effort to prevent the introduction of fats, oils, and grease (FOG) into the MSD sewer collection system and prevent sewer collection system blockages that may result in sewage overflows to the environment, MSD has adopted a FOG Management Policy. In addition to the policy, MSD adopted FOG Management Guidelines and Design Specifications for Grease Control Equipment (GCE) grease traps and interceptors.

The FOG management policy, guidelines and design specifications apply to those facilities that prepare and/or serve food for commercial consumption, otherwise known as Food Service Establishments (FSE). It requires FSEs to control FOG discharges by installing properly sized and maintained grease traps/interceptors.
