LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles International Airport is dealing with brown, contaminated water at its international terminal, which is undergoing renovations.

The Los Angeles Times reports Saturday ( that airplanes parking at five of Tom Bradley International Terminal's gates haven't been able to replenish their drinking water because of bacteria, copper, brass and rust from the building's plumbing.

The planes have been forced to use bottled water or transport water from other terminals using water tankers.

That can cause flight delays.

Officials for Los Angeles World Airports say they originally shut off water to all 13 gates.

The problems is now limited to four new gates and one old one.

Water inside the terminal isn't affected.

The city is spending $4 billion on airport renovations, including an expansion of the international terminal.
