Cooking fat, oil and grease (FOG) is a leading cause of sewer pipe clogs. FOGs cool and congeal on the inner walls of sewer lines and on tree roots that grow in them, much like arterial sclerosis in our bodies. The resulting clog restricts sewage flow, which can back up in your home or property, or even in the street. In fact, kitchen grease is a leading cause of sewer spills into the Monterey Bay.

Coast Water District (MCWD) serves the Monterey Peninsula's
fastest growing and most diverse communities — the City
of Marina and the Ord Community (the former Fort Ord).
MCWD provides high quality water, wastewater and recycled
water services through management, conservation and development of
future resources at reasonable costs.
