  The superflush
The Union Leader and New Hampshire Sunday News - 31-Mar-05 - Ready, get set, flush - 103 times - at new riverfront ballpark: "MANCHESTER � The turf is laid out, the seats are bolted down and workers are putting finishing touches on the new Fisher Cats Ballpark on the Manchester riverfront.

But what if fans can't flush? Could opening day end up awash?

With that remote possibility in mind, an important test � the Super Flush � takes place tomorrow at the new city-owned stadium. And the Fisher Cats management has recruited Little Leaguers to be on hand to flush toilets � all 103 of them � in synchronization.

'Young boys like to flush toilets for whatever reason,' said Shawn Smith, president and general manager of the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. The Super Flush is advised in order to clear any impurities out of the system.

The stadium has 52 toilets for women. In the men's rooms, there are 19 toilets and 32 urinals. Each flush adds between 1.6 and 1.9 gallons to the city's sewer system. And although the stadium offers many modern conveniences, the toilets do not use electronic sensors. All use the old-fashioned push handles."
