DWM FOG workshop: Hold the grease, please!


The DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management (DWM) will host a Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) Permitting Program workshop on Friday, Oct. 6, 10 a.m. to noon, at the Department of Watershed Management, 4572 Memorial Drive, Decatur.

DWM developed the FOG Permitting Program workshop to educate the public about the harmful effects of grease on the county’s sewer system. Discharges containing high concentrations of fats, oils and grease from food service establishments such as restaurants, schools, nursing homes and other public facilities can cause blockages or overflows of the sanitary sewer system.

The workshop will provide an overview of the FOG program and give facilities an opportunity to ask questions. The FOG workshop is limited to 60 participants.

To attend, RSVP by emailing
