City Asks for Day of Water Conservation
Hermantown, Minn. – The City of Hermantown’s Public Works Director has asked residents to conserve water usage for Thursday, June 10. This request aligns with work being performed by the City of Duluth on the water main that delivers all of Hermantown’s water.
Work being performed by the City of Duluth is routine, but the combination of high temperatures and extra caution has Hermantown officials requesting 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,” said Paul Senst, Hermantown’s Director of Public Works. “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 is slated to be completed on the same day it begins – Thursday, June 10.
