Utilities workers in Bloomington fixed four water main breaks Thursday, according to City of Bloomington Utilities Department Communications Manager Holly McLauchlin.

McLauchlin said the number of breaks increased after the cold snap last week, which took temperatures below zero.

Water mains were broken in the 500 block of East Audubon, 2200 block of East Queens Way, 900 block of South Hawthorne Drive, and 400 block of East Walls Drive.

Seven more water mains broke between December 1, 2022, and December 29.

Bloomington residents can report water main breaks by calling the emergency number of CBU at: 812-339-1444
