Grease Management

Grease in Sewer #1Fats, Oils & Grease (FOG) are a fact of life in both our homes and businesses.  It is unavoidable that some will end up in the main sewer system, however, there are ways to mitigate the impact of FOG waste on your home, business, pipes and budget!

Are you a homeowner?  Click here for a bilingual guide on Fat Free Sewers in the home.

Do you own a restaurant?  Work in the food industry?  Click here for the informational flyer sent in January.

The City is obligated to clean and maintain all the main sewer lines and these pictures show congealed FOG that we have encountered, yuck!
