City of Bloomington Utilities (CBU) crews have repaired a water main break on East Dodds Street. Nineteen residences were disconnected from water service early Sunday morning while crews repaired the break. Those customers are now under a precautionary Boil Water Advisory. Unless otherwise notified, the precautionary Boil Water Advisory will be lifted at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, September 17th. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) requires all public water systems to issue a Boil Water Advisory when the pressure drops below 20 psi in the water main.

Those affected should follow the instructions:

  • Immediately after your normal water pressure is restored, run COLD water from a sink or tub until clear water flows from the faucet. 

  • Boil drinking water for at least 5 minutes prior to consumption.

  • It is recommended that all water used for drinking, cooking, and oral hygiene be brought to a full boil for FIVE minutes. It is not necessary to boil water for other uses.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the City of Bloomington Utilities at 812-339-1444.

Smart Meter installation is underway! Our contractor, Utility Metering Solutions (UMS) is out and about prepping meter pits and lids for the new smart water meters. They use their laser cutter trailer to make a hole in the lid (pic 1) which is where the antenna will sit (pic 2). The antenna is waterproof, durable enough for someone to step on, and low-profile so you can mow over it.
