What You Can Do to Help

The easiest way to solve the grease problem and help prevent overflows of raw sewage is to keep FOG out of the sewer system in the first place.

Watch out for Scams

Be cautious of commercial additives, including detergents that claim to dissolve grease. These additives simply pass the grease down the pipes where it will clog the lines in another area. They are a waste of money and are strongly discouraged.

Speak with your friends and neighbors about the problem of grease in the sewer system and how to keep it out. For additional "FOG" Best Management Practices and other information, please visit the Lake County homepage or call the Lake County Special Districts Administration at 707-263-0119.
