Guam - If you own a restaurant, you'll likely get a visit from the Guam Waterworks Authority soon.

As GWA spokesperson Heidi Ballendorf reports, improper disposal of fats, oils, or grease, otherwise known as fog, continues to cause backups to our sewer system.

Despite efforts to maintain the island's wastewater line, she says more must be done to educate the local and business community.

"Between now and the summertime our source control officer is meeting with every single restaurant there are out there every day I've been told starting last week one to one with restaurants and educating them we have brochures and we just recently developed a giveaway of an oil scraper so proper disposal at home and at the business is what we're going for," she said.

Ballendorf adds that GWA must work with the Guam Environmental Protection Agency who have the enforcement authority.
