The City of Bloomington Utilities has issued a precautionary boil water advisory to residents in the City of Bloomington, Illinois, following a water main break yesterday (Wednesday, 18 August).
The break occurred at the intersection of South Park Square Drive and West Sunset Avenue, and water was shut off to 26 addresses while repairs were made.
Customers were informed of the advisory on the official CBU website and its social media profiles. You can read the Twitter update below:
According to the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM), all public water systems must issue a boil water advisory if water pressure in the main line drops below 20 psi.
Affected customers can visit the CBU website to stay updated with the advisory. Anyone who has signed up to the Monroe County Alert will receive alerts and updates in real-time.
The boil water advisory is set to remain in place until 9 am this morning (Thursday, 19 August). This suggests that bacteria tests – which take up to two days to produce results – are not required.
