What is an Emergency?

Gas leaks, odor of gas, damaged lines, carbon monoxide symptoms, water main breaks or no water service 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.

If you have a water-related emergency, call 402.554.7777. Our personnel are ready to assist you 24/7. When in doubt, call us immediately.

*The quantity of gas delivered hereunder shall be expressed in therms. The term, "therm", as used in this rate schedule means the quantity of gas which contains one hundred thousand British thermal units (100,000 Btu). The number of therms delivered hereunder in any month shall be determined by multiplying the volume of gas in cubic feet by the average heating value of the gas, expressed in Btu per cubic foot, as applicable for such month, and dividing this product by 100,000.

**For billing purposes, when necessary, the conversion factor for converting therms to gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) shall be 0.8 gallon per one therm.

Gas Cost

The Base Commodity Charge will be combined with the Weighted Average Cost of Gas (WACOG) for a combined Commodity Billing Rate.  WACOG shall be derived in accordance with Schedule GCA, Gas Cost Adjustment Provisions.  Billing rates per therm shall be calculated and rounded to four places, following generally accepted rounding rules. Billing rates per GGE shall be calculated and rounded up to two places where pumps carry rates to two places.

Rates included herein are subject to adjustment for monthly changes in the cost of natural gas to the District as provided for in gas rate Schedule GCA, Gas Cost Adjustment Provisions.  For current billing rate and/or billing rate history contact the District’s Marketing or Rate Divisions.

Flexible Market Pricing

Flexible Market Pricing may apply to vehicular natural gas volumes delivered via District owned public fill stations. On a monthly basis, District management can alter the retail price at the pump. The retail price at the pump may be decreased or increased, considering excise credits, competing fuel prices, and local market pricing for CNG. No retail price for CNG sales shall be lower than the District’s commodity cost of purchased gas plus margin of $0.75/GGE (or $0.60 per therm), prior to the addition of all applicable taxes and statutory payments.

Taxes

The District is required to collect Federal Excise CNG Fuel Tax and State of Nebraska Compressed Fuel Tax. The applicable rates will be incorporated into the combined Commodity Billing Rate. In addition, all applicable Federal, State and local taxes will be charged.

Statutory Payment to Cities

Under Nebraska Statutes Sections 14-2138 and 2139, R.R.S. 2007, the District is required to pay to each city or village within the District’s boundary two (2) percent of retail sales of gas within that city or village. Two (2) percent is not included in the above rate. Therefore, the rate for all customers residing inside the corporate limits of a city or village is 2 percent greater than the rate indicated above.

Payment

The monthly bill will be rendered at the above net rate. 

Emergency Priority

Gas service under this schedule is subject to curtailment to meet fuel requirements of higher emergency priority customers. Emergency priority customers shall be determined by the District or as directed by other governmental authority having jurisdiction.
