Residents of the Stadium Suites Apartments told to boil their water

A broken 6 inch water main has prompted a boil water advisory for residents of an apartment complex near Williams Brice Stadium, city of Columbia Water Works officials said Tuesday evening.

Water customers in the Stadium Suites Apartment buildings 1-4 on Silo Court are affected. They should vigorously boil for 60 seconds any water to be used for drinking, making ice or food preparation.

The apartment complex is located off Bluff Road and Bluff Industrial Boulevard.

Anyone living near the affected units should also boil their water before use if they have experienced a drop or loss of water pressure.

The City of Columbia Water Works is working to correct the problem.
