POLAND, N.Y. -- A boil water advisory has been issued for the village of Poland. 

Officials say they are cleaning the tank at the village's water storage facility and water will not be safe to drink while the work is being done. 

It started at 10 a.m. Tuesday, and could take two to three days to complete -- until the tests run clean.

During this time, residents need to bring tap water to a rolling boil, keep it boiling for one minute, and cool before using. The boiled water should be used for making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth and cooking. Officials also advise people to use bottled water for drinking. 

Poland residents will also notice a loss of water pressure.
