A boil water order is still in effect in Pittsfield following a water main break on Main Street last week.

The order affects about 35 town water customers, according to Scott Noble, assistant water works superintendent.

Noble said Monday afternoon the main broke Thursday and the town made a temporary repair, but then had more issues with it Friday.

The boil order is for customers from 689 to 798 Main St., Noble said.

Noble said he isn’t sure when it will be lifted.

Notices were delivered to all homes advising of the order and those homes will be notified when it’s lifted, according to a Sunday news release from Town Manager Kathryn Ruth. The release said affected residents will be notified when it’s lifted.

Water should be boiled for at least five minutes before drinking, making ice cubes, washing food, brushing teeth or doing any other activity involving consumption of water, the release said.

The town asks that questions about the order should be directed to Noble at 487-5203 or by calling the Maine Drinking Water Program at 287-2070.
