Water Utility Problems

777 N Oolitic DR

Case Date:

Our water pressure has dropped significantly over the last week to make me concerned that something is wrong further up the line. We have much lower pressure than usual when with only one faucet running and we see no signs of water line issues on our property. Has all of Bloomington experienced low pressure lately?

Case Date:

Many of the newly planted oak trees are showing signs of stress as the leaves are yellowing and browning. Will the City water these trees during this dry time? Several people are trying to water them with buckets, but it seems that there would be a better way to keep these trees healthy after investing so much in planting them.

Illegal Discharge (Storm Sewers)

1020 S Woodlawn AVE

Case Date:

On May 4th, 2022 I was taking a walk through the park when I noticed a chemical-type smell lingering near the stream that flows east to west through the middle of the park. When I went to investigate the source of the smell, I was alarmed by an opaque milky white substance contaminating the flowing stream. It also seemed to be the source of the smell. I followed the contamination upstream and traced it to a white PVC pipe that appears to originate from the Bryan Park pool facility. There was also particulate settling in the water where the pipe drains into the stream. Immediately after that I walked to the pool facility and confirmed with two city workers that the pool does indeed drain directly into the park's stream. They also told me that they were directed to power-wash the pool area and the resulting material was discharging directly into the stream via the PVC drainage pipe. Further, other city workers have confirmed with me that the pool water itself gets drained into the stream annually. I am not sure if this is legal - and if it is legal, it is certainly not environmentally sound. The material that is draining into the stream is very likely environmentally harmful.

Utilities Yardwork

612 S Bobcat BND

Case Date:

Brand new owner, I was cutting grass with my riding lawn mower, the lawn mower blades made contact with the sewer/water metal plate damaging the cover. There is a hole on top of the metal plate that needs to be repaired. I put an orange cone to cover the hole. This hole is not big enough for a kid to fall but someone could get hurt and trip.

245 W Grimes LN

Case Date:

The grass on the city side of the ditch is waist high, last time this was cut the city threw a rock into the Storage Express window and I really don't want that to happen again. Can a crew get out to the ditch and trim it before we have another flood and the water has no where to go?!!!
