Re: Sewers backing up again

Well, the same situation was cleaned up about 4 weeks ago. The LaHuerta truck came then and spent 7 hours un-blocking 2 pipes that were stuffed with grease, fish scales and sand. Somebody or somebodies are putting grease and fish scales down their drains. The Engineers without Borders are advocating creating an informative, educational easy-to-understand instruction on using grease traps and strainers to share with the restaurants, fish coops and taco vendors. Educating and changing behavior of people is not an easy task! It wouldn't hurt for all of us to talk to the restaurant owners, who don't have grease traps and fish markets who don't use strainers, to let them know how damaging grease and fish scales are to the sewer. The LaHuerta truck has been called for again and is in repairs in Cihuatlan, hopefully to be here soon.
