Print Story | Email Story
PITTSFIELD, Mass. Monday, May 17 marks the final week for the flushing of the City of Pittsfield's water system.
 
Water mains throughout the city will be flushed to remove accumulations of pipeline corrosion products. Mains will be flushed Monday through Friday between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.
 
The upcoming flushing for this week may be expected to affect the following areas:
  • Cascade and Churchill streets.
  • West Street from Fort Hill west including Meadow Ridge Drive, Lillybrook Road, and
  • Westbrook Terrace.
Although flushing may cause localized discolored water and reduced service pressure conditions in and around the immediate area of flushing, appropriate measures will be taken to ensure that proper levels of treatment and disinfections are maintained in the system at all times. If customers experience discolored water, they should let the water run for a short period to clear it prior to use.
 
If discolored water or low pressure conditions persist, please contact the Water Department at 499- 9339.
