The Pacific Northwest Pollution Prevention Resource Center (PPRC), through its Western States Alliance (WSA) program, is conducting virtual FOG Abatement trainings from June through November, 2020.
Without effective management, FOG is typically discharged to sanitary sewer systems by food service establishments (FSE), including restaurants, hospital and school cafeterias, food trucks, and others. Preventing these discharges avoids serious problems in the sewer system and at the POTW. This training aim to improve the management, operation and maintenance of wastewater conveyance systems and treatment and disposal facilities.
The training is targeted toward small, rural communities; FOG technical assistance providers; pretreatment programs; restaurants; school cafeterias; public works maintenance personnel; brewery & winery managers; school officials; food and beverage manufacturers; and other food service establishments.
For more information and to view the complete training schedule, visit the Western States Alliance website or contact Krysta Thornton. Training sessions are listed by state to provide CEUs, but all are welcome to attend.
This training is made possible through a grant from the USDA’s Rural Development Office.
