— North Carolina State University officials said Wednesday that people should avoid drinking water on the main campus or using it for cooking until further notice.

Officials said an odor in the water was identified at three locations near Cates Avenue, and they said they want to test the water to determine the source of the odor before flushing the system and determining if the water is once again safe for consumption.

This process could take up to two days to complete, they said, and they encouraged people to bring their own drinking water to campus on Thursday and Friday.
