Fats, Oils, and Grease
FOG is the acronym used to describe the accumulation of Fats, Oils, & Grease (FOG) that are commonly the result of cooking by-products. Most FOG originates in the kitchen from food preparation, cooking, cleaning, and disposal.
FOG discarded down sink drains will cool and stick to the surface of all downstream pipes. This can lead to blocked drain lines for private property owners and in the public sanitary sewer lines. Blocked sanitary sewer lines can overflow and spill wastewater onto private properties, streets, and into storm water.
