Summer Water Usage: Odd/Even Watering
Did you know early morning watering this time of year can impact water pressure? Although the District has adequate water supplies, we do see very high demands and some pressure loss in our system in the early morning hours (5-8 a.m.) when customers irrigate their lawns.
You can help reduce peak demands and maintain more optimum pressures in the system by switching up your sprinkler schedule. We recommend:
- Odd-numbered 🏠 💦 on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
- Even-numbered 🏠 💦 on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday or Sunday.
If you are interested in using less water, check out these wise water use tips.
We also offer a $75 rebate to residential water customers who have a rain sensor shut-off device or wi-fi sprinkler predictive controller installed. Details are available here.
Best Tasting Water
We are proud to announce that your tap water is not only safe and high-quality, but recently was recognized for its great taste!
M.U.D. won “Best Tasting Water” honors November 3, 2021, at the Nebraska Section’s American Water Works Association (NSAWWA) conference in Kearney. Our water was judged best tasting in the state and will go on to represent NSAWWA at the national competition in San Antonio, Texas, in June 2022. Entries were judged on appearance, scent, taste and aftertaste.
Congratulations to our employees who work diligently to help provide safe, reliable, cost-effective – and great tasting -- water to our community every day. And, thanks to you, our customer-owners, for supporting your public water utility!
