The Wastewater Treatment Plant is experiencing a problem with fats, oils and grease (FOG) building up in the sewer pipes, in the wet wells at the pump stations, and at the treatment plant itself. Most of the FOG in the collection system is a byproduct of cooking. It gets into the collection system when put directly down sink drains or when dishes, pots and pans are washed.
The best way to eliminate the FOG problem is to eliminate all fats, oils and grease from getting into the collection system. It’s simple… never pour fats, oils or grease into sinks, toilets or down drains. After cooking, let it cool, use a rubber scraper to remove it from dishes and cookware, put it in a sealed container, and put it in the trash.
