The City of Shawnee's Industrial Pretreatment Program was approved by EPA in 1983, revised in 1993, and continues to evolve and improve to provide a safer, cleaner environment for the citizens of Shawnee. The latest revision to the program was in March of 2014. In March, DEQ accepted the City's revised Pretreatment Plan Document, which included newly established local limits for certain pollutants.

Contain Grease to Avoid Costly Sewer Overflows and Backups
The City of Shawnee reminds residents and businesses to collect FOG (fats, oil and grease) in a container and dispose of it in the trash or take it to a recycling facility. When FOG is poured down the sink, it can clogs sewer pipes, which leads to costly maintenance issues.
Residential grease blockages are one main cause of sewer overflows and backups. When manholes overflow, the raw sewage drains into our rivers, streams, and ponds. Cleaning up the environment and homes after sewer overflows and backs up is very costly.
Where does FOG come from?
Why is FOG a problem?
When FOG clogs sewer pipes, the wastewater that is supposed to flow through pipes can back up into businesses and homes, or onto the ground and get into our rivers, streams, and ponds. This sewage can causes illness in animals and people, not to mention damage to structures and dwellings. It also kills plant life.
What is the proper way to dispose of FOG?
NOT down the sink or garbage disposal. Use the trash. Not the drain. Scrape and wipe pots, pans, and dishes into the trashcan before washing.
