The County Bureau of Utilities and Environmental Health Services (EHS) work together to minimize the impact of Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) on the County sewage system.
FOG blockages in the sewage system cause overflows of sewage into our streams lakes and the bay. EHS enforces FOG provisions of the Food Service Facility Regulations and provides FOG related information in the Baltimore County FOG Control Program Manual.
