FOG
Fats, Oils, and Grease

Sewer pipes become clogged over time and can cause sewer backups in your home or sanitary sewer overflows (SSO).  During a SSO, untreated wastewater can flow onto streets, into storm drains, and into public waterways.  All of these can result in health hazards, expensive property damage, and threaten the environment.  This will also increase the costs associated with operating and maintaining the City’s collection system.
