Is the water safe to drink?

Yes, Poughkeepsies Water Treatment Facility produces drinking water that meets all the federal and state drinking water standards. In homes that have lead services and lead plumbing fixtures your plumbing may cause your tap water to exceed the drinking water standard. We have installed an additional chemical treatment at the treatment facility to reduce this potential and anticipate this problem will be eliminated.
