(Springfield, MA)  —  Five communities are under a mandatory water restriction.  A 60-inch water main was shut down for emergency repair Thursday.  Customers in Springfield, Longmeadow, East Longmeadow, Agawam and Ludlow are told to conserve water. The transmission main connects Provin Mountain Reservoir to Springfield and surrounding communities. Northampton residents are still under a water restriction, but for a different reason.  The city issued the ban on non-essential outdoor water use because of a low flow on the Mill River.
