Hydrant Testing Begins on April 18, 2018

This notice is to all residents of the City of Poughkeepsie who utilize City water –

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.
