PITTSFIELD — A boil-water order has been issued for parts of Main Street because of possibly unsafe water after a break in a large water main, officials said.

The order is in effect from 689 to 798 Main St. and will remain in effect until further notice.

Pittsfield Water Works experienced difficulties with water pressure Thursday because of the water main break on Main Street, according to the town.

All consumers in the area were directed to boil water for at least five minutes before drinking, making ice cubes, washing food, brushing teeth or doing any other activity involving consumption of water, according to the order.

Any questions about the order should be directed to Scott Noble, assistant water works superintendent, at 487-5203; or by calling the state of Maine Drinking Water Program during regular business hours at 287-2070.
