FOG is an acronym for Fats, Oils, and Grease which is commonly found in wastewater.
BMP (Best Management Plan) is a program developed to solve the problem of fats, oils and grease (FOG) being introduced into sanitary sewers, waste water treatment plants and finally our lakes, rivers and streams.
FOG is the leftover grease from cooking, food, drink preparation, and meat cutting. FOG can be found in meat fats, shortening, butter, margarine, sauces, and dairy products.
Control FOG at the source – in your FSE
A Best Management Plan (BMP) can go a long way toward reducing FOG. It will greatly reduce your need for emergency service calls to clean up spills and open clogged drains.
Our Plan will guide you, step-by-step, to create a written FOG BMP that includes everything you need to know and your municipality mandates require – from training to accountability to reduce FOG.
The municipal FOG inspectors will inspect your plumbing and sewer system for FOG accumulation. They will verify that your FSE (food service establishment) has implemented and is adhering to a Fats, Oils and Grease Best Management Plan for controlling FOG. Most importantly, the inspector will check to see if you have a written FOG BMP which includes a list of your FOG sources, your standard operating procedures, cleaning records, grease separation device(s) specifications, waste disposal manifests and proof that you have trained your employees in the proper procedures to handle FOG.
Nearly every city in the United States has a FOG/BMP protocol; the problem is there are no tools to effectively implement one. Our program has been reviewed for compliance and has been well received by City Officials and Local Health Departments.
That is why we developed an interactive Fats, Oils and Grease Best Management Plan Compliance Program that not only explains what needs to be done, but leads you step by step through the requirements.
Affordable and easy to use, our step-by-step, one -time set up allows you to get right to work without having to spend the time and energy to create a FOG BMP program of your own.
Implementing FOG BMP will greatly reduce the amounts of Fats, Oils and Grease being introduced into your plumbing system, therefore reducing the expensive service calls required from blockages.
FOG BMP helps bring you into compliance with government mandates, avoiding penalties and fines.
Accountability features are built in to ensure the program is being adhered to, affording you peace of mind.
We supply everything that is required for compliance on our interactive website:
- Grease Trap/Interceptor specifications
- Cleaning Records
- Compliance Checklist
- Kitchen Signage
- Online Training & Review
- Notifications to your pumping company to schedule service at your FSE

Your choice to implement a FOG BMP will have enormous benefits downstream.
From keeping the infrastructure of your community functioning as it was intended, and for the preservation of clean streams, rivers, and lakes, adherence to this FOG /BMP is simply the responsible thing to do, and for that we applaud you.
Be sure to display your FOG BMP decal in a prominent place to show you are doing your part to preserve the community environment.
