As part of the Housing Authority’s and Public Works Department’s ongoing six-to ten-week review and audit of household water leaks (started Feb.17), high amounts of grease have been reported in drains and sewer pipes.
NCN Residents are reminded: putting bacon grease; animal fat, or automotive grease down drains can severely clog sewage lines.
This can also cause toilet and sewer line blocks that prevent proper flushing resulting in foul sewage back-up into resident’s house and crawl space. Fat, oil and grease should be properly disposed of in the trash and not poured down drains or toilets. The Authority asks for the cooperation of homeowners while the two auditors visit houses to perform the necessary water review – to improve water services in the community.
