July 15, 2010: Fatbergs

Fatbergs in the London sewers.

Quote:
Workers clad in overalls with masks and gloves shoveled out enough gunk to fill nine of London's iconic double-decker buses, utility Thames Water said in a statement.
"We're used to getting our hands dirty, but nothing on this scale," said Danny Brackley, a sewer flusher with Thames Water. "We couldn't even access the sewer as it was blocked by a 4-foot wall of solid fat."


It's not just the grease, the other stuff being dumped down the drain hurts too.

Quote:
The flushers' 'lard' job is made even tougher by the wet wipes and sanitary products bunged down there too. There's only one group of Londoners who love this stinky stuff - the West End's rats - who 'dig' fat as a food source and dig into fatbergs for nightly warmth. In fact, you'll rarely see a rat in a fat free sewer.

They couldn't pay me enough to go in there without a titanium spacesuit.

Seems like we had a discussion about this here not too long ago.

Don't dump grease down your drains. It doesn't magically disappear.

Did the guy in the photo remove his gas mask so they could take the shot?



classicman  Thursday Jul 15 09:33 AM

snark/No it doesn't, but the nice men there, we keep them employed scoopin' it out /snark.

Srsly - that is SO nasty. Its a great reminder of what that crap does when you eat it too. You want that in YOUR body?

Is there, by any chance, a liposuction clinic nearby?

He's a trained professional. My BIL is a plumber or "shit merchant" as he likes to say. He's been showered with "full" waste lines and had to keep working the rest of the day before he could shower. I think their noses are different. (I know their brains are.)

Yeah see that's why I would choose electrical as a trade.

(The only problem with that trade: the penalty for doing something wrong could be death.)

Low-fat sewer tunnels are like low-fat cream-cheese. I mean, really, what's the point of even eating it, if it does not taste good?



Gravdigr  Thursday Jul 15 02:23 PM

Sounds like a bunch of shit to me.

I prefer to eat lowfat sanitary napkins, wet ones and fat free disposable diapers.

Mix eight shovelfuls of half-digested lard with 10 female sanitary products, four used nappies, two used condoms, and one used syringe in a large bowl. Sprinkle liberally with rodent droppings and hair, then spray with urine.
Serve luke-warm in long bowls made from ceramic drain pipes.
