A water main break has been reported in Pittsfield on Thomas Island Road.  Pittsfield City Hall announced that around 2:30 this afternoon water service will be unavailable at all address within Tomas Island.  That info according to a post on the Pittsfield City Hall Facebook page.  We will keep you updated as information becomes available.

Other surrounding locations may also be affected by poor water pressure and discolored water until the repair work is completed.  Water main breaks often occur because of cold temperatures.  The cold often causes pipes to become brittle.  Also, the slight change in air or water temps can also drastically increase stress on pipes.  Breaks in a water main are common following a cold spell.

Below is the announcement from Pittsfield City Hall’s Facebook page…
