DeKalb County Department of Watershed Management (DWM) has partnered with the DeKalb County School District to reduce sewer spills. The county worked with the school district to develop the “No FOG, No Clog” public education campaign for more than 102,000 elementary, middle and high school students. 

Nearly 60 percent of all spills are caused by fats, oils and grease, or FOG, poured down sink drains. FOG coats the inside of pipes and eventually forms a blockage leading to a spill.
