Water Canada Launches a New Comic about FATBERGs

Water Canada and the Municipal Enforcement Sewer Use Group (MESUG) have partnered with Illustrator Nathan Wright and KSB Pumps (Canada) to present a fresh, new comic featuring everyone’s favourite lump of non-flushables: Fatberg.

The term “fatberg” refers to the congealed lumps of grease, wet wipes, and other non-flushable items that end up in our sewer systems. More than ever before, fatberg debris are clogging pumps and wastewater systems leading to blocked private drain connections, clogged sewer mains, and damage to wastewater treatment equipment, costing Canadian municipalities and taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars every year. It’s a serious problem, but not one that people often talk about. That’s where illustrator Nathan Wright comes in.

Wright is the creator of the lovable character featured in The Adventures of FATBERG, an educational book aimed at children.

The comic will run in every issue of Water Canada for the next two years.
