The City of Fort Pierce Building Department is hosting its first-ever Grease Trap/Interceptor Installation and Maintenance Class in partnership with Fort Pierce Utilities Authority on Thursday, August 11 at 9:00 am at City Hall (100 North US Highway 1).
This class is designed to help business owners learn how to install/maintain grease traps and grease interceptors for their businesses. Every business or establishment that produces and disposes of fat, oil or grease (FOGs), such as restaurants, hospitals, schools and senior centers, must have a grease interceptor system to prevent the discharge of waste grease into the City's sewer systems. Grease interceptors prevent FOGs from entering and clogging sewer lines by separating the FOGs from the normal wastewater stream.
The presentation is expected to last 45 minutes and is intended for business owners and plumbers; however everyone who wants to learn more is welcome to attend.
The City of Fort Pierce is dedicated to providing community leadership, quality public service and a clean, safe environment for all citizens.
