The City is raising awareness of fats, oils and greases to help keep our sewer systems clear.
Every year the City of Campbell River spends time and resources cleaning Fats, Oil and Grease (FOG) from the sewer system. FOG is the root cause of many sewer problems, including sewer spills and equipment malfunction, and it can also create problems in your home, like sewage back-ups and basement floods.
The City is bringing awareness to the FOG issue and has been working with School District 72 to bring ideas forward for a new FOG mascot. Children from schools across Campbell River submitted their designs and three finalists were chosen. It is now up to you to decide who wins!
To get involved, visit the City’s Facebook page at facebook.com/cityofcampbellriver before February 10, 2023, and view and ‘like’ your favourite design. The mascot with the most likes at noon on February 10, 2023, will be declared the winner. Spread the word, and encourage your friends, family and neighbours to vote!
The City will digitize the winning design and use it throughout the FOG awareness campaign. The winner will also receive a $50 gift card for a local Campbell River business.
Together we can reduce FOG from the sewer system and help save money and resources.
