The North Attleboro Wastewater Division would like to remind everyone to keep cooking oils and grease from sewer and storm drains.
Fats, oils, and grease (FOG) are a significant cause of clogs and spills in household and restaurant plumbing and public sewer lines. When FOG gets into the sewer line, it
sticks to pipe walls, creating significant blockages when it cools. FOG blockages in the sewer line can quickly increase the likelihood of a sanitary sewer overflow in both the public sewr lines and your home. A preventative solution is to throw leftover FOG into a compost bin or trash instead of pouring them down the drain. If you use a paper towel to wipe FOG from cooking utensils, dishes, and pots, put the towel in the compost bin or trash. This simple measure will help reduce the risk of a sanitary sewer overflow occurring. Please reach out to us at 508-695-7790
