POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- City of Poughkeepsie residents should take note the fire department is testing the fire hydrant system throughout the city beginning Monday.

Because the system is directly linked to the drinking water supply, residents should let their water run for a minute as a precaution until it runs clear. The water is safe to drink, but officials do say to use caution when doing white laundry -- it is recommended that you wait 24 to 48 hours after the testing has been completed in the vicinity of your neighborhood.
