COLUMBIA — A water main break was identified on North Stadium Boulevard, north of Interstate 70, on Wednesday afternoon.

Columbia Water and Light posted on Twitter just before 5 p.m. Wednesday that the department was working to isolate the break. Officials clarified that there was no corresponding boil advisory.

Officials said the break could result in discolored water. The department said to flush with water to clear the system of discoloration.
