mains, and gravity lines. The treatment plant is permitted by the Texas

Dispose of Cooking Oils & Grease Responsibly
Did you know when you pour your cooking grease down the drain it collects in your sewer lines forming a solid “grease log”. This “grease log” obstructs the sewer lines, which can cause the sewer to back up into homes and places of business. Find out how to reduce fats, oils, and grease in your home.
Cleaning up after a fabulous Thanksgiving meal? Please don’t pour your grease down the drain! Cease the grease and recycle it at the #HolidayGreaseRoundup! When fats, oil, and grease are washed down the drain, they stick to the inside of pipes, building up until they become clogs. This can cause sewage backups—not something you want to add to your holiday (or any day).
