Save Our Municipal Sewer System from Fats, Oils, and Grease!

City of Durango

The City of Durango Utilities Department invites restaurant owners, managers, and staff to attend one of the upcoming educational seminars pertaining to the City’s Fats, Oils, and Grease (F.O.G.) Program. The seminars will be held once each day starting Monday, January 27th through Friday, January 31st at the Durango Public Library (1900 East 3rd Avenue). All presentations start at 8:00 a.m. and will last approximately one hour. Attendees will learn best management practices, rules and regulations, and what happens if a restaurant violates the F.O.G. Municipal Code. 

Fats, Oil and Grease deposits in sewer mains is the most common cause of Sanitary Sewer Overflows (S.S.O.) and backups which are environmentally harmful, inconvenient and costly for affected property owners. These educational seminars will explain the importance of combating the issue at the source.
