Hydrant Testing in Northeast Section of City Begins on June 20, 2017
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that the City of Poughkeepsie Fire Department will be servicing and testing the City fire hydrant system. This system is directly linked to the drinking water supply.
Be further advised that during the testing period, the water is safe, but should be run until it is clear; use caution when doing white laundry-it is recommended that you should wait a twenty-four (24) to forty-eight (48) hour period after the testing has been completed in the vicinity of your neighborhood.
Please note that a street specific schedule will be posted each week on www.cityofpoughkeepsie.com and in the City’s Newsletter.
During the next three (3) weeks, hydrants in the northeast section of the city will be tested:
Main Street – North to the City Limits
North Hamilton Street – East to the Town of Poughkeepsie
