Attention Heber Food Service Establishments
Heber City has adopted a FOGS Ordinance.
FOGS stands for FATS, OILS, GREASE and sand
It is the number one cause of sewer system blockages in Heber City. FOGS sticks to the walls of your plumbing and the sewer system and can build up over time. Eventually, it can block your plumbing or the sewer system.
What YOU Should Know
Heber City has adopted a FOGS Ordinance for all food service establishments and certain auto and manufacturing companies. The intent of the Ordinance is to prevent sewer blockages and reduce loading at the Heber Valley sewer treatment plant by requiring all Food Service Establishments to have a grease trap or interceptor. The Ordinance will also entail annual inspections and fines for violations.
