Wheat Ridge, CO (PRWEB) May 15, 2010
Linko Data Systems, Inc. has released internet-based software that helps wastewater agencies keep Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) from entering sewer systems. The software, http://www.FOGTracker.com, is the first of its kind and drastically reduces an agency’s cost to manage a FOG reduction program.
Linko Data Systems, Inc., a leading provider of environmental compliance software since 1996, is calling its latest software release “revolutionary” because it completely removes the burden of physical grease trap inspections, supports mobile operations and eliminates paper manifests.
For just a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee, the FOG Tracker software helps ensure grease traps are maintained according to a municipality’s ordinance or recommendation. Physical trap inspections are no longer required, paper manifests are eliminated, and all FOG is fully accounted for which prevents unethical waste haulers from illegally disposing of FOG. Now municipal wastewater authorities can manage FOG reduction programs with less manpower, fewer budget requirements, and make sure grease is properly disposed of.
Grease trap manifests, (the records of grease traps being pumped out), are entered by disposal companies or waste haulers via the internet. This saves the wastewater authority from physically inspecting whether or not grease traps were pumped. Grease traps that have not been serviced on time and are a threat to discharge FOG into the sewers, are brought to the authority’s attention in near real time with just a few mouse clicks. Additionally, WWTP staff no longer needs to receive physical paper manifests as proof that traps were pumped out. Communities’ green initiatives at met by reducing paper waste and eliminating vehicle usage for trap inspections.
With FOG Tracker online software, enforcing municipal regulations is easily accomplished in seconds. Warning letters and Notices of Violation are automatically escalated according to the client’s custom regulations. Permits can be printed and tracked for renewal as well. All told, what used to take many man-hours can now be accomplished in minutes.
The software is available on a subscription-basis and accessed over the internet (Software as a Service). As such, FOG TrackerTM removes the cost and burden normally required of municipal IT departments to install a vendor’s software.
By reducing paper use and eliminating the need to frequently drive to inspections, FOG Tracker software helps communities meet their green initiatives.
