Illinois American Water Shares Video Reminding Customers to … – Business Wire

The Family-friendly animated video provides tips to defend drains from clogs this holiday season.
BELLEVILLE, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Illinois American Water is sharing an animated public service video reminding customers to properly dispose of fats, oils and grease (FOG) this holiday season. Properly disposing of FOG can help prevent clogs in household plumbing and sewer lines. The video features ugly sweater-wearing characters Fats, Oil, and Grease as uninvited holiday party guests who threaten to wreak havoc on pipes.

“The animated video is a fun way to draw attention to a serious issue,” said Illinois American Water President Rebecca Losli. “We hope this educational video helps customers avoid home plumbing issues as well as decrease impact to critical community sewer systems.”
Illinois American Water reminds customers that, if poured down the drain, fats, oils and grease can stick to the inside of pipes and cause buildups that can clog pipes or lead to sewer overflows. Taking these easy steps to avoid FOG clogs will help protect pipes and watersheds:
Also, avoid flushing wipes, even those labeled flushable or biodegradable, and paper towels down the toilet. These can cause major problems for wastewater systems. Always trash, never flush!
