What is FOG?
FOG is short for fats, oils and grease. FOG is found in foods such as meats, sauces, salad dressings, foods cooked in deep fat fryers, cookies, pastries, cheese, butter and many, many more. The FOG Program is a written agreement between the City and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) that went into effect on January 1, 2009. This program seeks to reduce the number of sewer system blockages and overflows caused by fats, oils and grease.
