Artifacts: Grease Trap

Grease Trap Cover

There are so many things “embedded” in sidewalks and streets that we rarely pay attention to what we are walking over.  This grease trap lid is one such access point to the amazing variety of gear and plumbing that makes our lives so routinely easy.

Not everything we flush down the drains belongs there. Kitchen grease is one such item. It tends to congeal and clog sewer pipes, leading to unpleasant and expensive little and big disasters. The need to get grease out of sewer pipes was recognized centuries ago and improved grease traps have been patented numerous times going back to 1884 and as recently as 1999.

Yet such marvels of our infrastructure go unrecognized and unheralded. We casually step over the covers having enjoyed our restaurant meal, and maybe having clogged our own arteries with the grease that didn’t go down the drain.
