I spent a few months in that regional building -- it was a pit. My normal haunt - the HQ - had working toilets but had a big fire and a lot of electrical problems.

From the article:

An internal memo issued to building employees warned them not to even attempt to go to the bathroom at work.

“DO NOT flush toilets or use any domestic water,” read the memo, first reported by WUSA News Channel 9. “Due to a mechanical failure, there is high air pressure in the domestic water system that resulted in damage to toilets.”
What exactly is "domestic water"?
I purr therefore I am.
