FOG Logo3.jpg
Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) pose major problems for every municipality in the U.S. and Dothan is no exception. The greasy waste enters the sewers through connections from homes, food service establishments, and industrial wastewater dischargers. Through chemical processes, FOG solidifies in the sewer system causing blockages and back-ups to the normal flow in the system. This ultimately causes sanitary sewer overflows which release raw, untreated sewage into our neighborhoods, business community, creeks, streams and rivers. Under the direction of the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, the City of Dothan has adopted an ordinance designed to manage the discharge of FOG waste into the sewer system.  The purpose of the ordinance is to eliminate the impact of FOG on the sewer system and wastewater treatment plants, prevent sanitary sewer overflows, reduce or eliminate clean-up costs for the tax payers, reduce or eliminate adverse effects on the environment, and reduce health risks to the public.
