The City of Bloomington begins fire hydrant maintenance

BLOOMINGTON – City of Bloomington Utilities (CBU) is beginning the annual fire hydrant maintenance this week within the area defined as follows:

  • North of CBU Southern Boundary
  • South of 3rd Street and West of State Rd 48
  • East of CBU Western Boundary
  • West of I-69


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 as contractors for the City of Bloomington Utilities.

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. In this case, it is recommended that customers postpone washing clothes and limit use of hot water until the cold water clears.
