Tests Show Los Angeles World Airport Water Is Safe

Published on : Saturday, December 7, 2013

Lawa“During the past two weeks, Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), LA City Department of Water & Power (DWP) and airline employees at the Tom Bradley International Terminal (TBIT) have been addressing reports of water quality and discoloration of water from potable “water cabinets” on the ramps/tarmacs at TBIT aircraft gates.

“Water served at LAX comes from the DWP supply. Working closely with DWP, the water coming into the airport via DWP pipes and from the interior of TBIT was tested. Results showed acceptable levels of chlorine in the water, meaning water at the airport and in the cabinets is safe to drink.

“However, because measurements of chlorine levels at some of the TBIT gates were less than expected, and do not meet some airline criteria, the water at five TBIT aircraft gates has been temporarily shut off. Airlines are using potable water trucks to fill their aircraft tanks. Airline contractors have also taken action that includes cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting the water cabinets and hoses.

“It is also not unusual for plumbing in buildings to sometimes cause water to become discolored resulting in conditions that reduce the amount of chlorine disinfectant present in the water.

“LAWA continues to systematically test water at the cabinets, and is also looking at the relevant parts of TBIT’s water system to be sure any water quality issues are accurately isolated and addressed.”
