FOG Forum 2019 – April 16th & 17th
The 2019 Forum is now complete and continued a trend of annually increasing attendance. The Fats, Oil, and Grease (FOG) Forum is the premier event of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. It is designed to inform and train water-related professional technicians, managers, policymakers, and others about the latest developments in FOG-related issues. The Best Western Plus – Hood River received high praise for the venue and the food. We will soon be hard at work planning the FOG Forum 2020
Yesterday’s presentations can be found here.
