Downtown Duluth fountain could be running this week

The fountain in Duluth's downtown civic center is being filled with water and could be shooting it into the air later this week, said city architect Terry Groshong.

The fountain in Duluth's downtown civic center is being filled with water and could be shooting it into the air later this week, said city architect Terry Groshong.

The fountain in front of City Hall and the St. Louis County Courthouse will be tested to see if this summer's repairs were done right, and if so, an administration-led ceremony could be held later this week, Groshong said today.

"We believe we've taken a proactive approach to prolong the life of the fountain well into the future," Groshong said.

Years of neglect left the fountain leaking, its electricity panels in bad shape and its fittings corroded.

"We did it between other jobs to save taxpayer money," Groshong said. "And I think it worked out well,"
