There is a big blue square on the city of Bucaramanga in Colombia, and on all the other municipo on the west. It has the same colour than the river, so there is no difference left with water place and ground. I cant deleted it. Some knows what is going on ? Thanks. Kormin

... and it appears only at some zoom factors, at least on the web renderer, and not on Potlatch...

Someone kicked off a castline refresh yesterday and it looks OK now.

As you can read at the linked thread the coastline shapefile has been reprocessed an the error is going away when the tiles get rerendered.

I suspect that someone's broken a coastline or similar. The ins and outs of this sort of problem are discussed in another question here. Obviously it's a way from the coast, but a quick search with the history tab finds this changeset with the description "riverbank correction culpa virtual innundacion". Maybe try contacting the mapper of that?
