Yes! FOG is responsible for more than half of SASD’s sewer problems. When poured down the drain, FOG clogs the sewer system and causes backups or overflows. The result:
Increased customer rates
Health and environmental hazards
Increased maintenance for cleaning messes and replacing sewer pipes
How does FOG create a sewer blockage?
When poured down the drain, FOG cools, solidifies, and floats to the top of other liquids in sewer pipes. The FOG layer sticks to the sewer pipes and, over time, restricts wastewater flow. It can then cause a sewer backup or overflow.
