Grease Control

Renewable Water Resources (ReWa) and collaborating agencies are addressing the grease problem with local food service establishments. The Sewer Use Regulation includes a plan for the collection and transportation of fats, oils and grease (FOG) from Food Service Establishments (FSEs).

Each new business will be surveyed to determine the quantity of grease that it generates and the proper sizing of the grease interceptor. Businesses that transport grease are now being required to obtain a ReWa permit in addition to a South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control permit. All grease must be hauled to an approved ReWa site.
