City asks Lakeside and Woodland residents to reduce thermostats immediately

[Duluth, MN] The City of Duluth is asking residents and businessesĀ in the Lakeside and Woodland neighborhoods to reduce their thermostats to 62 degrees starting immediately. Making this change will help the City reduce the overall load on the system and avoid the possibility of a neighborhood by neighborhood shutdown of gas. Residents and businessesĀ are asked to make this change beginning at 6:45 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. today, January 28, 2022.

Last night the City communicated that a contractor in the Lincoln Park area drove through a piling and hit a large gas main. The City of Duluth took immediate steps to shut off gas in the area which impacted one customer.

This recommendation comes from City staff working through the night to resolve this issue. Work will continue throughout the day. No additional information is available at this time. Updates will be provided as they are available.
