NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
'Tis the Season for Expensive Clogged Sewer Lines due to Fats, Oils, and Grease ("FOG")... and Flushable Wipes Too!
Roasted meat juice, salad dressing, butter or frying oil residue, leftover dips and more... these can cause expensive sewer line back-ups—both in your home and on the street.
ALWAYS pour excess Fats Oils and Grease ("FOG") into an empty soup can or paper cup, freeze until solid, and dispose in the garbage. Then wipe down dishes, post and pans with paper towels to remove the remaining FOG before washing.
Yes, dish soap emulsifies grease, but it does NOT break it down in your pipes, no matter how much hot water your run.
And the problem gets even worse if you flush disposable wipes down your toilet... compounded by freezing winter weather!

Water conservation is about using water efficiently and not wastefully. Reducing your water use is inexpensive, quick, easy to accomplish, and benefits everyone. With greater and greater competing water uses, conservation just makes sense. Simple things you can do include:
adjusting sprinklers so that you water where it is needed
getting leaks fixed
installing low-flow faucet and shower heads
