About Stop the Clog
The Sacramento Area Sewer District (SASD) began planning for increased public outreach about FOG when the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) was considering regulations regarding sewer systems. Initial data analysis in SASD’s service area indicated that a significant percentage of FOG-related problems were in residential areas. As a result, SASD created a groundbreaking awareness and outreach program. The program was expanded in 2004 to include a broader regional perspective and to respond to increasing regulatory requirements.
