M.U.D. must maintain a reliable distribution system to provide safe, high quality drinking water and natural gas. To replace aging gas and water mains, the District has an infrastructure replacement program. Our gas and water rates include monthly fees to provide long-term funding for infrastructure replacement.
In 2008, the District’s Gas Department began an accelerated program to replace cast iron gas mains; this program should be substantially completed by the end of 2027.
The Water Department has more recently focused on risk modeling, which takes into account several factors in determining the priorities of water main replacements. Our long-term goal is to increase the rate of main replacements to approximately 25 miles a year. We are working hard to reverse the trend of the increasing number of water main breaks that impact our community.
Whenever possible, projects are done in conjunction with road or redevelopment projects or the City of Omaha’s combined sewer separation work to save money and minimize inconvenience to customers.
