In compliance with state and federal laws the Town of Holly Springs has developed a Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) Management Program. The purpose of this program is to educate the public and business owners about the problems associated with grease and grease accumulations in sewer lines.
FOG in wastewater can result in decreased capacity of sewer lines by cooling and congealing inside sewage pipes. This occurrence eventually causes blockages and sewer overflows and, therefore, is a major concern for the Town’s wastewater collection system. Significant sources of FOG are cooking establishments due to the amount of grease used in cooking and other food preparation work. Improper disposal and cleanup practices allow FOG to enter the wastewater collection system.
In an effort to work together to achieve the common goal of protecting the Town’s resources we are asking business owners that produce grease as part of their daily operations to take a few moments to review these sites for information and guidelines.
