Halftime Flush

Sewer departments across the country — including Miami-Dade’s — are bracing for the so-called Halftime Flush. It’s a yearly phenomenon when an estimated 90 million people flush about 350 million gallons of water down the toilet at the same time: during halftime of the big game.

Miami-Dade’s water-watchers said Tuesday the worst that could happen is a temporary loss of water pressure. To be on the safe side, people could stagger their flushing.

"It might make things a little easier on us if people go before halftime or shortly after, but it won’t make much of a difference," Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department spokesman Frank Calderon said. "People can go about their business as usual."
