Officials at Philadelphia International Airport say a nearby water main break has cut water pressure at the airport.
The airport said in a Twitter message that “there is no water pressure throughout the airport terminals.”
Spokeswoman Mary Flannery told The Philadelphia Inquirer that the break happened outside the immediate buildings. She said the Philadelphia Water Department was working on the break under the asphalt in the economy parking lot.
Flannery said the problem reported late in the afternoon is preventing passengers from flushing toilets, washing hands in bathroom sinks or drinking from water fountains. She said “There’s a small dribble in the sinks, that’s about it.”
Staff is distributing hand sanitizers to all restrooms. We apologize for the situation and appreciate your patience.

Officials didn’t have an estimate about when the problem might be fixed.
