Gas leaks, odor of gas, damaged lines, carbon monoxide symptoms and water main breaks are all considered emergencies.
If you smell gas, do not attempt to locate the leak. Instead, leave the house or building right away. Do not use any electrical switches, appliances, lights, telephones, or mobile devices, as an electrical charge could create a spark. When you are in a safe place, call M.U.D.'s emergency hotline at 402.554.7777 or 9-1-1.
If someone is showing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, call 9-1-1 immediately. Symptoms are like the flu.

M.U.D. Voluntary Outdoor Water Restrictions Extended Three Weeks, Requests No Watering on Mondays
Omaha, Neb.— Metropolitan Utilities District is urging its water customers to continue limiting outdoor water use through Monday, August 21. Repairs needed on a water main have reduced capacity at one of its water production facilities and, due to the complexity of the repairs and the extreme temperatures, outdoor water restrictions are being extended.
M.U.D. extends its thanks to customers who have curtailed water use. This situation is not ideal and changing habits can be burdensome. When faced with adversity, M.U.D. employees and customer-owners have stepped up and their efforts are appreciated.
Customers are asked to limit outdoor water use to twice per week while avoiding Mondays and follow the previously established odd/even watering schedule. These restrictions will reduce water demand and ensure continued reliability to the entire system.
Outdoor watering includes:
Irrigating/Sprinkling lawns (unless for new sod)
Filling swimming pools
Hosing down driveways
Running decorative fountains
M.U.D. continues to work with municipalities, including wholesale water customers served by M.U.D., to curtail sewer flushing, lake filling, firefighting drills, street washing and other non-essential uses of water.
