On a beautiful afternoon in mid-November the Metropolitan Utilities District water system received a boost both figuratively and literally. President Mark Doyle officially opened the West Dodge Pump Station located just south of 153rd and Dodge Street.
The new facility, which went into service this summer, represents the District’s latest investment in infrastructure, improving water service in the metro. The station provides expanded capacity into northwest Omaha where significant development continues. “The project strengthens our reliability and has allowed for system redundancy that improves water pressures for our customer-owners in a big way,” said Doyle.
M.U.D. Board Director Tim Cavanaugh was on hand for the ribbon cutting along with Vice Chair Jim Begley who also gave remarks to the group. “This undertaking was accomplished by so many brilliant people, and I am so proud of how it turned out. I want to thank the great employees of M.U.D. for their efforts every day to provide for our customer-owners.”
