The purpose of this Management Program is to aid in preventing the accumulation of fats, oils and grease into the Town of Farmington’s sanitary sewer system thus reducing the potential for sanitary sewer overflows and process interference at the Water Pollution Control Facility (WPCF). This Management Program outlines the wastewater pretreatment requirements for food preparation establishments and other commercial facilities that discharge fats, oils and grease in their wastewater flow.
All new and existing facilities that discharge fats, oils, and grease in their wastewater are applicable to this Program. This Management Program shall be incorporated into Town’s Sewer Ordinance and its Code in the application, administration and enforcement thereto.
