Fatbergs certainly grab the headlines. Described as smelling something like a composting festival toilet and rotting meat, they are often compared in weight to elephants, whales, and small buildings. We are collectively responsible for their build up and the cost of removing them falls to us all through our water bills.
But fat, oil and grease (FOG) discharge into the wastewater system more often creates smaller, more local problems which are much easier to trace to their source.
Blocked pipes and gullies, flooding and bad odours can be an expensive headache for those responsible, and for their neighbours.
Thames Water, along with other water authorities, impose strict limits on the amount of FOG that can be discharged into the main sewer system.
In turn, most commercial landlords require tenants to install drainage protection through FOG and food waste removal systems. They are also increasingly appointing external auditors to survey their tenants’ FOG management.
Under this scrutiny, more restaurants, pubs and take-aways are being found out and prosecuted under the Water Industry Act.
