Cease the Grease

Cease the Grease Education Module

What happens to my used water once it goes down the drain? What about the grease after I am done cooking and cleaning? Should I pour it down the drain or dispose of it in the trash? Learn about the New York City sewer system and how we can protect the pipes as we “Cease the Grease.“

Interactive, multi-disciplinary, STEM lessons and activities, introduce students and educators to the hidden world of thousands of miles of pipes, hundreds of valves and regulators, and other infrastructure with the power to transport our drinking water and our wastewater, with your help.
