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.
