Sewers and Storm Water

Sewers convey wastewater and storm water. Storm water also is controlled through streams, detention basins and erosion control. The “2014 City of Bloomington Stormwater and Sanitary Sewer Master Plans” is a set of documents that take an in-depth look at existing conditions and needs. The plans were approved by City Council resolution on September 14, 2015. Link here.
