Keep things flowing!

Our sewer system needs your help.

We are experiencing problems with the build-up of fats, oils and grease (FOGs) in our sewer pump stations. All efforts to reduce FOGs from going down the drain are encouraged. 

You can help prevent costly and unsanitary overflows by following a few simple steps:
  • Pour cooking oils and scrape grease into non-recyclable containers and dispose of them in the garbage. Do not pour FOGs down the drain.
  • Dry wipe all pots and dishes. Use a paper towel to remove greasy leftovers from pots and dishes prior to washing in the sink or dishwasher.
  • Place a trash basket in the bathroom to dispose of solid waste. Disposable diapers, personal hygiene products and wipes of any kind (even the “flushable” kind) do not belong in the sewer system.
It takes all of us working together to help protect and preserve our sewer system and the environment.
