City of Duluth and Minnesota Power Collaborate During Storm Clean Up

Crews have been hard at work restoring power and cleaning up trees

The City of Duluth crews were out bright and early this morning in partnership with Minnesota Power crews.

Minnesota Power worked through the night and the Lakewood water plant power was restored last night, enabling full functionality of the water systems in Duluth.

Water service was not disrupted yesterday after the public was asked to conserve water usage.

Duluth’s water supply is now safe and clean to drink and water quality was never impacted by yesterday’s power outage.

The City has opened up a drop off site for tree branches or brush in the area:

The drop off site is open from 8am – 6pm and is located at the former Police firing range on Rice Lake Road across from Marshall School. The drop off site is free of charge to residents who are able to transport debris to the site.
City staff will be on hand from 8am – 6pm daily starting today, July 22 – Sunday, July 24. The City will not accept any items that are non-tree parts from the storm damage.

The City is continuing to clear side streets, any parts left by City crews won the street will be picked up by the City.
