Residents in Hermantown are being asked to conserve water usage on Thursday.  According to the Public Works Director, the request will allow for City of Duluth crews to work on the water main that delivers all of Hermantown's water. 

The Director says the work being performed is routine, but with the combination of high temperatures and extra caution, city officials ask for a day delay on lawn watering or other large-scale water uses. 

“This is an extra precautionary step should there be any delays in the work being performed by Duluth,” Paul Senst, Hermantown’s Director of Public Works said in a press release. “We are fully confident that their work will be done quickly, but it is always worth additional precautions when the weather is this hot.”

There are no expected delays in water service for any residents related to this work, as public works staff were able to fill both of Hermantown’s water towers. 

The maintenance work being performed by the City of Duluth should be completed on the same day.
