City of Bloomington Utilities continues its weekly COVID-19 wastewater sampling program. While we are presently in the early stages of technological development, wastewater sampling has been proposed as a future “early warning” methodology. Over the past three weeks, sample concentrations have increased from non-detect to 3800 gene copies/100mL at the Dillman plant and 9200 gene copies/100mL at the Blucher Poole plant. 


The City of Bloomington is committed to sharing information about how its operations and workforce are affected by this public health emergency and will continue to provide weekly updates about confirmed cases among staff while protecting employees’ privacy.
