A goose has no trouble with the raindrops in Attleboro’s Blackington Pond.

ATTLEBORO — City workers were called on to repair a water main break on Pike Avenue Thursday morning.

The break was reported at 190 Pike Ave., which was closed from Pleasant to Station streets and water was shut off on that stretch. Station Street was without water as well.

While water was restored, officials warned residents they might see some discoloration advised them to avoid using chlorine bleach in laundry during that time.

Those who experience discolored water for longer than 24 hours should contact the water department at 774-203-1850.

Water main breaks are common this time of year as frozen ground thaws.

Also, the Oak Hill water tank at 725-750 Oak Hill Ave. is being isolated for cleaning and inspection.

This may cause some discoloration in the water in that area, officials said.

Although the discoloration will clear on its own, the water department will flush hydrants in the area as needed, officials added.
