The Public Works Department for the City of Hermantown announced Wednesday morning that they are asking residents in Hermantown to conserve water on Thursday, June 10 through the day due to some water system maintenance.

The City of Duluth will be performing routine maintenance on a water main that provides water to Hermantown on Thursday, and the request from Hermantown's Director of Public Works to conserve water on Thursday is a precautionary measure to make sure people still have water for basic needs.

Hermantown city officials specifically recommended putting off watering your lawn on Thursday as an easy way to help in the water conservation effort. They also recommend putting off any other "large-scale water uses".
