As Mardi Gras approaches, New Orleans city officials are looking at installing special gutters to keep the beads from stopping up storm drains.

As of Wednesday, workers have removed more than seven-million pounds' worth from drains along a popular parade route.

It's hoped the temporary drain devices will keep the beads where they belong.
