WASD's Super Bowl game plan is to defend household water pressure


(MIAMI, January 30, 2015) - On Super Bowl Sunday, living rooms, family rooms and man caves everywhere will be humming with activity as football fans tune in for the big game. In preparation  the Miami-Dade County Water and Sewer Department (WASD) is gearing up for a spike in bathroom trips that could impact household water pressure on game day.

A little known stat about football’s biggest day: water pressure can drop by as much as 18-22 pounds per square inch right at the two-minute warning of the first half and continue throughout halftime, as well as right after the game. As a result, WASD will be monitoring the system’s demand and may add another pump to the system at each plant to compensate for the decrease in pressure.

So local football fans can sit back and enjoy the game – and the commercials – knowing that WASD has them covered.
