COHOES - Crews in Cohoes were dealing with their fourth water main break in as many days on Monday.
The latest was spotted Monday morning on Western Avenue near James Street.
People in that area may be without water until the break is fixed.
There was a break at Cayuga and Remsen streets on Sunday night.
This follows two water main breaks on Friday in the area of Berkley Avenue. That one affected nearly 3,000 residents.
Statement from the Mayor's Office:
There is a water main break on Cayuga Street in the area of the Cohoes Community Center (Remsen Street) that has interrupted water service to the immediate area.
Residents in the immediate area will have little to no water pressure until the break is fixed. Some Discoloration of the water is expected. THIS IS NORMAL AND NOT HARMFUL. However, washing of white laundry is not recommended immediately following.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
