Some of the issues regarding the environment have come to light in recent years. The Clean Water Act has required some adjustments in the wastewater industry. Recently, that has meant more stringent requirements regarding grease traps.
Grease poses a serious problem for wastewater plants. The grease reacts badly with natural bacteria and enzymes that break down human waste. Therefore, if grease goes through wastewater plants it causes pollution to waters of the state. Prevention of grease getting into the system is important.
City services have provided educational services by means of brochures for restaurants and homeowners to prevent pollution to our water system. Southland Septic Service, Inc. has been encouraging proper grease trap maintenance since the start of its business. Proper and regular maintenance prevents pollution and can prevent costly repairs.
We encourage all to do the responsible thing and protect our environment by keeping grease traps maintained properly. We are here to help.
