Boonville broke ground on the 2021 water improvement project planned for the city.

Leaders met at Johnson Park across from the Boonville City Hall to celebrate a big upgrade to the community.

The project will replace old waterlines and strengthen the city's infrastructure for years to come.

Mayor Charlie Wyatt says some of the aging pipes date back more than 100 years.

The nearly $4 million dollar improvement project will also add solar panels to some areas of the city.

Today's high temperature of 87° was our warmest in a week and a half - we last climbed that high on the afternoon of September 18th when we tipped the scales at 88°. The remainder of the evening will remain quite mild under clear skies; expect temperatures to first fall to 83° by dinnertime before dropping to 73° by 10PM. The clear skies and weak southerly wind flow will help keep temperatures relatively stable during the overnight and predawn hours - we'll wake up to a morning low of just 62° early Wednesday morning.
