What’s the deal with fats, oils, and grease?

When cooking waste like fats, oils, and grease (FOG) go down the drain, it damages and clogs pipes. These clogged pipes cause sewer overflows which introduce harmful bacteria into Galveston Bay and the environment. You can protect your pipes and the Bay by throwing leftover kitchen grease in the trash and recycling your used cooking oil at an approved location.

Meet Hector, the latest weapon in the battle against fatbergs

A former police dog will be swapping a life of crime for a life of grime, after being picked to detect sewer blocking ‘fat bergs’. Hector, a nine-stone bloodhound, has been trained to detect fatty blockages on Southern Water’s 25,000 mile sewer network by sniffing air gaps present at ground level.

The Problem With FOG

Once poured down the kitchen sink, fats, oils, and grease (FOG) condense and clog pipes and sewer lines below our feet.
