Utility problems in the City of Bloomington Eight homes are under a precautionary boil water advisory



Bloomington, Indiana – Crews from the City of Bloomington Utilities (CBU) were called in on Sunday, October 7, 2023, to fix a broken water main on Browncliff Lane. Until 12 p.m. on Monday, October 9, a precautionary boil water advisory is in effect for 25 addresses, unless otherwise advised. Details & addresses at 812-339-1444 or

When the water main’s pressure falls below 20 psi, the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) mandates that all public water utilities issue a precautionary boil water advisory. The following steps should be taken by anyone who are impacted:

• 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 prior to consumption.

• It is not necessary to boil water for other uses. Customers who have signed up for the Monroe County Alert will be alerted directly. Alternatively, CBU customers may refer to the CBU website at Wutilities 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 what alerts you would like to receive.

Please call 812-339-1444 to speak with someone from the City of Bloomington Utilities if you have any questions or concerns.
