What are the most important takeaways for you from the course?
"I had no idea that FOG was so important so long ago. I was under the impression that it was a relatively new thing. I know what grease interceptors are and how they work but this course has really opened my eyes and made me more aware of what grease interceptors are all about. I had no idea about food waste disposers and grease removal devices. This course did a great job of explaining what they are and how they work." - Anonymous
"The importance of: 1. Phasing out GGIs 2. All fixtures that could introduce FOG, requiring connection to HGI 3. Education in BMPs is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT in the commercial and residential areas. 4. The chemistry behind FOG! (more operations/public works/Utility Directors need to be aware of these facts! 5. The need to rework language in ordinances/policy to support successful FOG prevention, with the facts and data to back it up!" - Lindsey
"For me, I am new to the FOG Program so I learned a lot about sizing, the importance of flow rate and making sure to size the interceptor correctly, and definitely learned the importance of hydromechanical vs gravity interceptors."
"Everything was well laid out and concise. I actually used the concepts I learned on Tuesday in the field on Thursday. Thoroughly enjoyed the class." - Alan
"Thinking through the certified and tested interceptor vs the concrete tank that has no validation for its effectiveness."
"How we got where we are today, how hydrogen sulfide and by-products are produced, how grease, water, surfactants, and heat all work together (or not)." - Julie
"The amount of FOG that really enters POTW due to poor device performance and maintenance." - Chris
"How effective and efficient HGIs are. Also, how a GI works and what to look for when inspecting." - Ben
