Silicon Valley Clean Water
Just as fatty foods can clog your arteries, the discharge of FOG can clog the sanitary sewers causing overflows of raw sewage which may harm the environment and damage property. Oils and grease from residential kitchens can cause blockages inside the home and in the community sewer. In the cities of San Carlos and Belmont, SVCW staff visits restaurants and other food serving facilities to provide guidance on proper handling of FOG. Without correct maintenance of grease traps and grease interceptors FOG will enter the sewers causing blockages and sewer overflows.
