Some tri-state residents could notice low water pressure or discoloration beginning Monday, as two cities’ water systems begin hydrant flushing and maintenance.

In Jasper, the water department will conduct the maintenance between 7:30 a.m. and  3 p.m. each day for several weeks.

Officials say the water will still be safe to drink.

But if you notice a discoloration, they suggest letting the tap run for fifteen to twenty seconds until it clears up.

Boonville officials will also begin hydrant maintenance today.

They say the procedure will improve the performance of the drinking water distribution system.

Maintenance is scheduled to run through April 28.
