City of Bloomington issues boil order after drinking water main break

BLOOMINGTON – On Saturday, February 10th, 2024, City of Bloomington Utilities (CBU) crews were dispatched to repair a broken drinking water main on N Stoneycrest Road. Eighteen addresses will be under a precautionary Boil Water Advisory until 9 a.m. on Monday, February 12, 2024, unless otherwise notified. Addresses and more info at or 812-339-1444. 

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) requires all public water systems to issue a precautionary Boil Water Advisory when the pressure drops below 20 psi in the water main. Those affected should follow these instructions: 

  • Immediately after your normal water pressure is restored, run COLD water from a sink or tub until clear water flows from the faucet.
  • Boil all water used for drinking, cooking, and oral hygiene for at least 5 minutes before consumption.
  • It is not necessary to boil water for other uses.

Customers who signed up for the Monroe County Alert will be immediately alerted. Alternatively, CBU customers may refer to the CBU website at for a list of specific addresses affected. If you have not signed up for the Monroe County Alert, you may do so at and click “Resident Alert Sign Up”. This tool enables CBU and other government offices to quickly provide you with critical information, including tornado warnings and advisories about road closures, missing persons, and evacuations specific to the addresses you register or the county as a whole. You may register to receive time-sensitive messages via text, email, or home phone, and you may select the alerts you want to receive.
