ORANJESTAD – On August 16, 2021, at the pumping station situated at the J.E. Irausquin Boulevard near the high-rise hotels, the Department of Public Works found fresh grease deposits in the water purification plant in Bubali.

Fresh fat deposit in the in the water purification plant in Bubali.These grease deposits cause considerable damage to the plant.

All restaurants are required to have a grease trap to capture the grease and to dispose of it responsibly to protect our environment. Irresponsible acts like the one the D.O.W. encountered the last weeks only cause more damage to the water purification plant in Bubali since this plant is already in a delicate state. It is important to remind all restaurant owners of the following: 

  • All restaurants must have a grease trap;
  • if you dispose of the grease in the kitchen, it does not mean that it does not cause problems;
  • it is prohibited to throw F.O.G. (Fat, Oil, and Grease) in the sewage system.

The D.O.W. hopes that this regrettable incident sends a signal to all restaurants to comply with the law and regulations.
