2018 FOG Information 

Fat, Oil, and Grease are abundant in, and on, the foods we eat. When foods are prepared, oils and greases may cook out of foods or be added as ingredients or as non-stick remedies. The FOG ends up on cookware, dishware, and kitchen equipment, etc. When these items are washed, the FOG is washed off as well and enters the plumbing system. A short time after the FOG enters the drain, it cools and separate from the dishwater. FOG accumulates in drains, sewer pipes and sewer pump stations. Over time, this residue builds up and can restrict and eventually cause blockage in sanitary sewer pipes. To see the best practices to control and handle FOG, please click here
