Default Heinz Field's restrooms drop the ball

Quote:
Numerous spectators at last night's Steelers game who had filled up with food and drink were prohibited from using some restrooms at Heinz Field because of apparent low water pressure.

The problem started sometime during the first quarter of the Steelers-Philadelphia Eagles game.

Some fans were turned away by stadium staff at the entrance to restrooms while others were told they could use some bathrooms without flushing.

Heinz Field stadium director Jimmie Sacco told KDKA-TV last night that the water pressure dropped from a city main line.

Christine Gaughan, a fan from Brentwood, said the toilets on an upper level wouldn't flush and the water fountains weren't working.

She said she then went to the first level and again there was no pressure.

The problem occurred in the men's restrooms as well.

Mark Currie, of Hopewell, who also attended the game, said the men's restroom he used had trouble with the water pressure.

He said the urinals were open but the stalls were closed.

It was unclear how many bathrooms were affected.

Officials said the football players were able to shower at the end of the game.

Sorry!

I'm surprised Al and John didn't bring it up.

Hmm...Kinda odd. I'd imagine this is a RARE occurence.

Yeah, that was a blast to deal with last night. Lines to the urinals at halftime ended at Parkersburg, WV. It was bad enough we had to deal with the normal "preseason idiot fans" in our section. Not fun. Thankfully that will change come September 16.

I am sure that this can be fixed within the next couple of weeks.
