City of Bloomington Utilities Issues Precautionary Boil Water Advisory

(BLOOMINGTON) – City of Bloomington Utilities (CBU) is repairing a damaged drinking water main on North Old State Road 37, near East Bethel Lane.

Some customers of CBU are temporarily disconnected from water service and will be under a precautionary Boil Water Advisory when the water is turned back on.

Unless otherwise notified, the precautionary Boil Water Advisory will be lifted at 10 a.m. on Thursday, January 2, 2020.

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. 

Addresses affected are listed on the CBU website

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 for a list of specific addresses.
