ECUA participates with local Food Service Establishments (FSEs) to promote and improve their environmental impact and to help create a positive, clean, and safe working and eating environment through the Fats, Oils, and Grease (FOG) and Backflow Programs.
The “Protector of the Environment” award recognizes commercial customers and/or FSEs' owners and managers who implement and enforce Kitchen Best Management practices to reduce the amount of FOG entering into the ECUA sewer lines. The program requires that FSEs must have installed a backflow device and be current with backflow testing guidelines. The award is presented quarterly to a local business that is in compliance with the ECUA FOG and Backflow established guidelines, participates in scheduled 90-day cleanliness inspections, has no FOG or Backflow violations, and no warnings within a one-year period.
