Drinking water lines at LAX became contaminated Wednesday morning. Travelers and employees are being warned not to drink or wash their hands with any tap water, an airport official said.

According to LAX spokesperson Nancy Suey Castles, “The cross-contamination occurred in Terminal 6 between 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. when a potable water line crossed with a non-potable line holding recycled and chilled water used for air conditioning.”
