Fire Hydrant Maintenance Continues During Week of Dec. 9

(BLOOMINGTON) – The City of Bloomington Utilities is conducting fire hydrant maintenance this week within the areas as follows:

  • North of 10th Street
  • South of Northern Utility Boundary
  • East of College Avenue
  • West of Eastern Utility Boundary

Hydrant maintenance for 2019 is expected to be completed this week. Crews are performing flow tests and other necessary maintenance on fire hydrants in the aforementioned area.  Signage is displayed in the affected area on the day the maintenance takes place, and maintenance crews carry proper identification. The schedule is subject to change if each day’s work is not completed as scheduled or in case of inclement weather. 

Customers may notice fluctuations in pressure and/or discoloration of their tap water during hydrant maintenance. If water appears discolored, customers are advised to run their cold water tap until it clears. It is recommended that customers postpone washing clothes and limit the use of hot water until the cold water clears.
