(BLOOMINGTON) - The City of Bloomington Utilities (CBU) has issued a Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) advisory for the following area after an SSO was confirmed on Tuesday, for the 400 block of South Henderson Street

A CBU employee noticed the presence of wastewater in that area. A follow-up investigation confirmed the flow is coming from a private sewer lateral connected to a residence in the 500 block of East 2nd Street.

CBU staff contacted the property owner who indicated they were already aware of the situation and are in the process of correcting it.

CBU advises residents in the aforementioned area to take precautions when coming into contact with untreated sewage that may have accumulated as a result of this overflow. Any individual who has come into direct contact with untreated sewage is advised to wash their hands and clothing thoroughly.

Reducing the number of sanitary sewer overflows is a major emphasis of CBU's commitment to create a more efficient and reliable wastewater collection and treatment system.

The City of Bloomington Utilities is committed to transparency, and this includes issuing public advisories in the event that a confirmed sanitary sewer overflow has occurred.
