Port St. Lucie Utility Systems FOG-Free February Contest
Port St. Lucie residents who commit to keeping FOG (fats, oils, grease) from entering the sewer system
To bring awareness to the problems FOG causes within the sewer system and educate residents about the ways they can help prevent it
When FOG enters pipes, it cools and forms blockages, which prevent wastewater from flowing efficiently. It builds up over time and collects other flushed debris. The clogs create backups and damage infrastructure, and ultimately, wastewater cannot be properly processed and treated to make reuse.
You can help maintain the integrity of the City’s vast wastewater system, which includes over 1,000 miles of sewer pipe, by disposing of FOG properly. By making a few simple changes at home, you are protecting your pipes, as well as the environment.
Visit Instagram @cityofpsl throughout the month of February and look for the weekly FOG-Free February posts. Respond in the comments with #ICommit. A winner will be randomly selected every Thursday to receive a FOG prevention gift basket including a bathtub drain protector, sink drain strainers, mini sink plunger, and grease container.
