(BLOOMINGTON) – City of Bloomington Utilities (CBU) crews are repairing a water main break at the intersection of East Dunstan Drive and East Allendale Drive.
Eighteen residences are disconnected from water service currently; crews will turn the water back on as soon as possible.
Those customers will be under a precautionary Boil Water Advisory when water service is restored; it is anticipated that water will be back on before 5 p.m.
Unless otherwise notified, the precautionary Boil Water Advisory will be lifted at noon on Friday, November 1.
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 below:
- 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.
Please see the City of Bloomington Utilities website at bloomington.in.gov/utilities for a list of affected addresses; those homes also will also be notified via a door tag. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the City of Bloomington Utilities at 812-339-1444.
