Some frustrated residents at Duluth's Gateway Tower apartment building have reason for celebration Friday.

Sherman Associates, Inc., the Gateway Tower property manager, reported a tube was installed to fix the hot water at the West Superior Street apartment building around noon Friday after it has been broken for nearly a week. 

Valerie Doleman, a spokesperson for Sherman Associates, reported water is being heating Friday afternoon. 

Doleman said her company learned of the issue Saturday, July 5. Sherman Associates worked to hire a contractor over the Fourth of July weekend to make emergency repairs.  

The contractor determined Monday that a tube failure caused the problem. Because the part is made at a facility in Indiana, Doleman said Sherman Associates worked to expedite a tube manufacturing process that normally takes 4-6 weeks. She said the part was made in two days, and contractors installed it as soon as it arrived Friday.


Hot water was restored at Gateway Tower apartment building Friday after the building was lacking it for nearly a week.
