City of Bloomington Utilities Repairs Water Main Break on East 10th Street, Issues Boil Water Advisory for Woodbridge Apartments

Bloomington, Ind. – Crews from City of Bloomington Utilities report that the water main break on Bloomington’s east side will be repaired by 11:00 p.m. and water service restored to those whose service was interrupted.  Crews have been working since mid-afternoon to repair the damaged pipe at the intersection of East 10th Street and North Pete Ellis Drive.

Once service is restored, a boil order advisory will be in effect until 8 a.m. Sunday, May 26 for those customers who experienced an interruption in water service at the Woodbridge Apartment complex. Confirmation that the boil order has been lifted will be issued to local media outlets at the appropriate time, as well as on the City of Bloomington Utilities Facebook page.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) requires all public water systems to issue a boil water advisory when a significant drop in pressure occurs in the distribution system. Affected customers should boil all water for drinking, cooking, and oral hygiene for 5 minutes prior to consumption.  It is not necessary to boil water for non-consumption use, such as washing hands or showering. If you experience discoloration in tap water, run cold water until clear water flows from your faucets.

Please use caution in the area of East 10th Street and North Pete Ellis Drive.  Construction will continue at that location through June 5 to install sanitary sewer infrastructure to serve the new IU Health Bloomington Regional Academic Health Center.  Motorists are advised to find an alternate route while work continues in the area, and to adjust their speed accordingly when traveling near the work zone. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the City of Bloomington Utilities at 812.339.1444.
