DOVER, Del. (AP) — Officials in Delaware say a force main break caused wastewater to flow into the St. Jones River.

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control says the Kent County Levy Court Public Works is looking into the break. According to a news release, the county is working into the night with environmental contractors to repair the main, with staff from the state department assessing the situation.

Residents are advised to limit water usage to consumption only, such as for cooking, drinking water, using the toilet, or dripping water to prevent pipes from freezing.
