Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) are food by-products that can severely damage a home’s drain line system as well as the sanitary sewer system. FOG collect and eventually harden on the inside of the sewer pipes; preventing water from flowing and causing blockages.
Blockages in the sewer may cause Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs), which potentially can cause raw sewage to spill into streets, lakes, streams, homes and businesses.
The best way to prevent blockages is to keep the FOG out of the drain line system. Below is a list of Best Management Practices that will help to prolong the life of your drain line system and reduce the inconvenience and cost of line blockages.
Best Management Practices: What to do and what not to do
Does that water tank at Smoky Hill and E-470 belong to ECCV?
No. The water tank being constructed at Smoky Hill and E-470 is part of a joint effort of ten south metro water providers called the Water Infrastructure and Supply Efficiency partnership – or WISE partnership. ECCV is not currently a member of this partnership.
WISE is made up of Centennial Water and Sanitation District, Cottonwood Water and Sanitation District, Dominion Water and Sanitation District, Inverness Water and Sanitation District. Meridian Metropolitan District, Parker Water and Sanitation District, Pinery Water and Sanitation District, Rangeview Metropolitan District, Stonegate Village Metropolitan District and Town of Castle Rock.
So who specifically does the tank belong to?
The tank itself will be owned and maintained by the WISE partnership, which will use a contractor to operate the system. The water that will be stored in the tank will be utilized by all of the WISE partners.
