In this issue of the newsletter, our lead article FOG An Increasing Problem and Opportunity by Rachel Dyson (Programme Manager, Anglian Water) explains the problem of Fats, Oils and Grease which sticks to the inner linings of pipes, binding with everyday items which are flushed down toilets, such as wipes, cotton buds and sanitary waste. Over time this can build up, stopping water from flowing freely, causing blocked pipes and pumps, sewer flooding and pollution.
