Bloomington, Ind. — The City of Bloomington Utilities has issued a Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) advisory for the following areas after an SSO was confirmed today, Thursday, November 1:

  • 500-600 blocks North Fairview Street

  • 700 block West Amy Robinson Drive

  • 300 block West Brookdale Drive

  • 1500 North Woodburn Avenue

The significant amount of rainfall received since Wednesday, October 31, is believed to be a significant contributor to this SSO.
