Project Construction Stormwater General Permit Public Notice:

City of Bloomington (401 North Morton St, Bloomington IN 47404) is submitting a Notice of Intent to the Indiana Department of Environmental Management of our intent to comply with the requirements of Construction Stormwater General Permit to discharge stormwater from construction activities associated with Bloomington Hospital Re-Use (BHRU) Project- Hopewell Phase 1 East. The project area is bound by 2nd, Rogers, 1st and Fairview Streets. Stormwater run-off will discharge into the Bloomington storm system which ultimately will discharge into Clear Creek. Please direct questions to the City of Bloomington 812-349-3913 or by email at

Project Background:

In May 2018, the City of Bloomington entered into a purchase agreement with IU Health for the 24-acre hospital site.  IU Health is expecting to relocate to a new hospital facility in late 2021 and will transfer the existing hospital property to the City.

The agreement states the City will receive a portion of the site cleared and remediated.  This area includes the main hospital building and the area bound by 2nd, Rogers, 1st and Fairview Streets.  The existing parking garage and the Kohr Administration Building will remain.  The site will offer the unique opportunity to construct a community hub from the ground up.

Project Details:

The Phase 1 East project is the first step for the City of Bloomington towards the redevelopment of the IU Health Bloomington Hospital site.  Details of the BHRU project in its entirety may be found at

The project limits of the BHRU Phase 1 East project are bounded by 2nd Street to the north, 1st Street to the south, B-Line to the east, and Rogers Street to the west.  The project will create development ready lots by demolishing existing structures, re-platting the property, installing utilities, constructing streets, landscaping and bicycle/pedestrian facilities.
