The Big Halftime Flush Wasn’t So Big After All

The myth of the “Halftime Flush” during the Big Game last night was debunked by New Jersey American Water’s engineers, who evaluated pressure and flow in several of the company’s more than 240 water tanks. Water tank levels, which would drop to meet customer demand, generally held steady though the Big Game, and during halftime, when the popular halftime flush should occur.

“We checked our system’s tanks in two counties and pressures across the system and found no flow increases or pressure drops at halftime,” said Alan W. Sleeper, P.E. “The flow from our Delaware River Regional Water Treatment Plant was steady throughout the day. We also checked a small system and saw no increased demand at halftime.”

New Jersey American Water constantly monitors the levels, pressures and flows across its water systems, which serve about a third of the state.

New Jersey American Water, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Water (NYSE: AWK), is the largest investor-owned water utility in the state, providing high-quality and reliable water and/or wastewater services to approximately 2.5 million people. Founded in 1886, American Water is the largest publicly traded U.S. water and wastewater utility company. With headquarters in Voorhees, N.J., the company employs approximately 6,700 dedicated professionals who provide drinking water, wastewater and other related services to an estimated 14 million people in more than 30 states, as well as parts of Canada.
