When grease washes down the sink, it sticks to the insides of sewer pipes. The build-up restricts flow and, by itself or in combination with other materials, can block pipes completely, causing raw sewage to back up into your home or overflow into streets and streams, potentially jeopardizing public health and the environment.
Fats, Oil and Grease (FOGG) from residential sources are the most common cause of sewer line blockages. The District offers its customers a free kit designed to aid in keeping FOGG from entering the wastewater system.
