Commercial FOG Program

The City of St. Augustine requires facilities likely to discharge grease or oil into the sanitary sewer system to install and maintain a grease interceptor of adequate capacity to service the facility.  Without proper maintenance, grease interceptors fail to prevent fats, oils and grease (FOG) from entering the City’s sewer system, creating problems in sewer lines, pump stations, and at the wastewater treatment facility.  The intent of the FOG program is to work with FOG generating facilities to minimize the amount of grease entering the City’s public sewer system.
