Scrape, Pour, Wipe

Fats, oils and grease can clog sewer lines, causing nasty sewage backups and serious damage to your home — not to mention ruining a perfectly pleasant holiday get-together!

SAWS is working to increase preventive maintenance of sewer lines to comply with the federal Clean Water Act.

By following a few simple rules, you too can help prevent costly (and disgusting) sewage spills.
