Miami civic officials are asking residents to time their trips to the bathroom during the Super Bowl because extra flushing at halftime can put added stress on the sewers.
The city said that to be on the safe side, people should stagger their trips to the loo because the so-called Halftime Flush could lead to clogs, worsen already leaky toilets and lower water pressure.

"It might make things a little easier on us if people go before halftime or shortly after," Frank Calderon, spokesman for the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department said in a news release on Tuesday.

It is estimated that at halftime of the Super Bowl, across the United States 90 million people will flush about 350 million gallons (1.3 billion litres) of water down the toilet at the same time.

It is equivalent to the amount of water that flows over Niagara Falls every 39 minutes.

Calderon isn't anticipating any big problems and said the city has boosted its clean water reserves.

But he did ask people to make sure they check their lavatories for leaks.

"Our sewer system is designed to handle more than the average capacity," he said. "People can go about their business as usual."

If everybody in the U.S. flushed at the same time ... the entire planet might be turned inside out. This freaks the bejesus out of me!

For a few years, we've had a tradition that we have some kind of our own play (and see what we can get done in one quarter) during the halftime of any Florida football game. That's pro AND college

I wonder if I can work this Miami factor in...

(I hope I won't be flushing with y'all )

GO GATORS!
