Welcome to the USDA FOG (Fats, Oils and Grease) Training Registration Page

PPRC and the Western States Alliance is providing technical training in FOG abatement. The training will focus on two areas:

1) How to develop an effective FOG Abatement Program

2) How to implement best practices in both a new and an existing program

The trainings will be conducted in a workshop format for small, rural communities that either do not have a pretreatment program, or find their current program inadequate to meet their needs.

 Training will includes such areas as:

  • Reasons for developing a FOG program and legal authority to do so.
  • Involving stakeholders and communication planning.
  • What is FOG, including its sources and impacts.
  • How effective management protects public/community health.
  • How effective management makes programs more cost-effective.
  • What is out there in the way of FOG abatement products, services and programs.

Participants will receive 0.8 Wastewater CEUs and a certificate of completion for attending.

PPRC has received grant funding from the USDA Rural Utilities Service (RUS) to provide technical training and assistance to small, rural communities in FOG abatement.
