The FOG Problem FOG: Fats, oils, and grease. If homeowners, and especially restaurants, pour grease down the drain, the sewer lines become clogged and the beneficial bacteria that do the dirty work at the wastewater treatment plant die off. When this happens, rules of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection require that the District stop disposal of the treatment plant effluent by way of groundwater infiltration, and instead disposing of the effluent into Cedar Key’s surface waters.
