City of Bloomington Utilities Publishes Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

City of Bloomington Utilities (CBU) published its annual drinking water quality report, providing information about local drinking water quality, data from tests conducted the previous year, and contact information for any questions or concerns.

The 2024 report details 14 contaminants detected in Bloomington's drinking water during 2023, including disinfectant byproducts (DBPs) and total organic carbon. Bloomington’s drinking water met all federal standards for safe drinking water. More than 70 additional potential contaminants were tested for and not detected, and thus are not listed in the report. Interested persons can find the report at bloomington.in.gov/water-quality-report.pdf.

As part of the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires community water systems to deliver a Consumer Confidence Report, also known as an annual drinking water quality report, to their customers. In addition to the annual report, the City updates data about drinking water at its Open Data Portal. Datasets include current and historic information about lead and copper, organic matter, and DBPs. In all, the site comprises 24 datasets relating to drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater including those tracking plant energy consumption, sanitary sewer overflows, and the results of the COVID-19 monitoring program CBU has participated in since August 2020, among other information. 

“The City supports the Utilities’ mission to enhance the quality of life in our community by providing safe, sustainable, and high-quality drinking water, wastewater, and stormwater services in a cost-effective manner, promoting public health, economic vitality, and environmental stewardship,” said Mayor Kerry Thomson. “I encourage residents to explore this year’s water report to learn more about our continued compliance with all federal safety standards.”
