North Adams City workers were kept busy well into Wednesday evening dealing with a break in one of the city's primary water mains.

Crews had to cut a dump truck-size rectangle through the pavement of River Street, blocking off the section of the road between the intersection of Houghton and Marshall streets and Holden Street, to get down to the ruptured main.

The break was discovered about 6 a.m., and as of 7:30 p.m., crews still were on the scene, trying to turn a stubborn shut-off valve. Members from a local gas company also were on the scene, in case the incident were to involve neighboring gas lines.
