College asks football fans not to flush at stadium

— Fans who had their fill of beer at the University of Georgia's homecoming football game on Saturday were warned - no flushing allowed.

Earlier this week, crews put up signs in bathrooms asking people not to flush "if it's yellow" and to leave the handle-pulling to attendants, who will do the job for the estimated 93,000 people at Saturday's game.

It's part of the university's "Every Drop Counts" water conservation effort in the drought that's struck Georgia and much of the Southeast.

The university is considering replacing all of the stadium's old toilets, which use 3.5 gallons of water per flush, with new ones that use less than half that amount per flush, said Arthur Johnson, associate athletic director for internal operations.
