Historic Town Remedies FOG Problem

Among the pump stations managed by Branford, CT, is a long-term problematic station located at Burban Street. There were two primary problems at this station: 1) clogging from modern day trash and raggy, stringy materials, and 2) fats, oils, and grease (FOG) from a nearby nursing home and restaurants, which accumulate and float on the water surface, resulting in a horrendous mess. Severe clogging issues were eliminated by new pumping equipment, but it took sophisticated controls to tame the fats, oil, and grease problem. Read the full case study to learn more.
