M.U.D. water quality report available
Every year, the District publishes a Water Quality Report for your review. To see the District’s most recent report covering 2015 test results, visit http://www.mudomaha.com/sites/default/files/CCR2015.pdf. Printed copies also are available upon request via email or by calling Customer Service at 402.554.6666.
To ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services prescribe regulations to limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
As a customer of the District, you receive a high quality product that meets or exceeds federal and state standards for safe drinking water. We conduct more than 500 tests a day to bring you high quality drinking water.
M.U.D. operates and maintains more than 2,880 miles of pipe that delivers clean drinking water to the taps of 208,256 homes and businesses in the metro Omaha area. We serve an average of 90 million gallons of water per day to the community and maintain nearly 27,000 hydrants for fire protection. The District operates three water treatment plants, which provide a reliable water supply and also allow us to take facilities off line as needed for system improvements.
To improve system safety and reliability, M.U.D. began a program in 2008 to replace more than 1,200 miles of aging cast iron water mains over the coming decades. Customers fund this program through water infrastructure fees on their monthly bill. For more information on 2016 projects, see the April billing insert.
M.U.D. is working diligently to ensure a safe and reliable drinking water supply to our customer-owners, as well as safeguarding the water system for future generations.
2016 Heat the Streets Run & Walk for Warmth
Heat the Streets Omaha!
In 2016, more than 1,500 households will need energy assistance in the metro Omaha area to keep their homes warm in the winter and cool in the summer. To help those in need, local utility companies, non-profit agencies and corporate partners are teaming up for the 9th Annual Heat the Streets Run and Walk for Warmth! Scheduled for Saturday, March 5, this event raises money and awareness for those who have fallen on hard times and need help getting back on their feet.
Join us at Midtown Crossing for this family-friendly event! There is a professionally-timed 5K run, starting in Midtown Crossing and winding through the historic Midtown and Field Club neighborhoods, and also an untimed, one-mile walk around Turner Park. The run starts at 9:00 a.m., with the walk to immediately follow. An awards ceremony will follow the race – and you don’t have to be fast to win! There will be free raffle drawings for a variety of prizes.
For more information or to register, visit www.heatthestreetsomaha.org. The 5K run is $43 and the one-mile walk is $27. Prices increase to $50 and $35, respectively, on March 1.
