The City of Pittsfield reported some issues today with a water main break and a separate issue of a malfunctioning elevator forcing the shutdown of the city’s Senior Center for the rest of the week.

The water main break is in the vicinity of Highland Ave.  According to the post in the City Hall – City of Pittsfield Facebook page, water service will be unavailable during the repair process.  The effect will primarily be felt in the vicinity of Pecks Road to McAllister extension according to the post.  That area may have water service but it may be discolored while the repairs are being conducted.  The city’s FB page will update the public with any updates as necessary.  In the post, the city also thanked residence for their patience.
