Notice of Construction – Main Street Water Main – March 27-29

The City of Poughkeepsie Engineering Department is informing property owners and residents located on Main Street between North Cherry Street and North White Street including Rose Street in the City of Poughkeepsie, that the Water Department will continue to exercise and test valves (as noted in prior notice), and now includes performing repair work.

Starting on Wednesday, March, 27 and continuing through Friday, March 29, 2019, the City of Poughkeepsie Water Department will be performing this work and water users may experience interruption of water service during this needed work.

Equipment on-site may include large excavators, dump trucks, haulers and other heavy equipment.  Noise will be kept to a minimum, but the use of a generator and temporary pumps may be required for a portion of the work.

At the completion of this work, residents may notice discolored or cloudy tap water due to the use of fresh water from local hydrants.  Simply run the water for a few minutes to resolve this issue.  It is suggested residents refrain from washing light colored clothes until water runs clear.

This notice of construction can also be found on the City of Poughkeepsie website or via social media, please check those electronic outlets for any updates.

Should you have any questions please feel free to contact City of Poughkeepsie Engineering Department at (845) 451-4192.  We thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation in carrying out this necessary work.
