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.
