The goal of the FOG Control Program is to reduce the amount of FOG being discharged into the sanitary sewer.
Article V of the Milpitas Municipal Code gives the City authority to administer FOG inspections.
Inspections are unannounced and occur during business hours. Inspectors will ask to see documentation indicating the food service facility is managing its FOG correctly, will inspect indoor and outdoor areas, and review cleaning practices with staff. Upon completion, a written Inspection Report will be provided and, if needed, inspectors will conduct a follow-up inspection to verify that all violations are corrected. Uncorrected, repeated, and/or serious violations will result in escalated enforcement.
