Have you ever stopped and wondered where the fats, oils and greases that you pour down your drains are going? If your answer is NO, you are not alone.

Though most of us are aware of the potential health risks of having too much grease in our diets, we don’t realize that putting grease into our sewer system poses a public health hazard and threatens the environment.

As grease from households and businesses passes through the sewer system, it sticks to the inside of the sewer lines. Over time, this grease builds up and blocks the sewer system  causing raw sewage overflows and backups.

In order to alleviate these environmental problems, wastewater agencies must devote considerable resources and money to remove grease from the sewer lines. These increased operations and maintenance costs ultimately impact customers with higher user fees.
