Last night, CenterPoint Energy experienced an interruption in gas pressure on our pipeline system in Shakopee. As a result, gas service was shut off to about 600 residential and business customers in the Shakopee downtown business district and some areas immediately to the north and south of downtown.
CenterPoint Energy crews worked overnight to identify and correct the problem. Since early this morning, technicians have been going to the affected homes and businesses to ensure that gas service is safely restored. These technicians are clearly identified as being with CenterPoint Energy. If the customer is not available, the technician will return several times and ultimately leave contact information for the customer to call to get service restored.
The goal is to have all service restored today. CenterPoint Energy apologizes for this inconvenience to our customers.
Stormwater flow through a historical and archaeological sensitive area along Highway 101 is causing degradation to cultural resources. The project will reroute stormwater to an area that will not result in further degradation of these historical and cultural resources.
The project is estimated at $1.55 million. Funding for this project will be divided among:
City Storm Drainage Fund
$336,406 from a Minnesota Historical Society grant. This project has been financed in part with funds provided by the State of Minnesota from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the Minnesota Historical Society.
$35,000 from Lower Minnesota River Watershed District
