DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - One year after being knocked out of service by the flood, Minnesota Power says major repairs are continuing at the Thomson Hydro Station on the St. Louis River in Jay Cooke Park.  The massive amounts of water during the flood overtopped the Thomson Reservoir, breached a portion of the earthen dike at the Forbay Reservoir and flooded the station's six turbines.  The station could be partially back in operation later this year and fully restored in 2014.  Repairs are estimated to cost 25 million dollars and Minnesota Power is also investing 35 million in improvements at the facility to help prevent damage from any future flooding.
