What is an Emergency?

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.

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.


Las fugas de gas, el olor a gas, las tuberías de gas dañadas, los síntomas de monóxido de carbono y roturas en las tuberías principales de agua son consideradas emergencias.

Si huele a gas, NO trate de localizar la fuga/escape. Al contrario, abandone la casa o el edificio inmediatamente. No utilice los interruptores eléctricos, electrodomésticos, luces, teléfonos o equipos móviles, ya que una carga eléctrica podría provocar una chispa. Una vez que se encuentre en un lugar seguro, entonces llame a la línea directa de emergencia de M.U.D. al 402.554.7777 o al 9-1-1.

Si alguien tiene síntomas de envenenamiento causados por el monóxido de carbono, llame al 9-1-1 inmediatamente. Los síntomas son como los de la gripe/catarro.

Si tiene una emergencia relacionada con el agua, llame al 402.554.7777. Nuestro personal está listo para ayudarle, 24/7. Cuando dude o crea que hay una emergencia, llámenos de inmediato.

Veterans Preference

Nebraska State Law has revised veterans’ preference for employment effective January 1, 2015. The purpose of this information is to describe eligibility requirements provided for in the law, and instructions for the Metropolitan Utilities District to use in verifying preference. The Human Resources Department is responsible to verify preference eligibility. Nebraska Veterans Preference Law is available in Sections 48-225 thru Section 48-231 of Nebraska Revised Statues Chapter 48:

Disability/Gender Identity/Female/Minority/Sexual Orientation/Veteran

M.U.D. requires all human resources be utilized to the fullest extent in order to continue progress in Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO). To prevent or limit a person's contribution to the District’s effort because of age, color, disability, gender identity, national origin, pregnancy, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or status as a veteran or a disabled veteran, is an injustice, not only to the individual, but to the District as well.


U.S. law requires companies to employ only individuals who may legally work in the United States – either U.S. citizens, or foreign citizens who have the necessary authorization. M.U.D. participates in E-Verify, an Internet-based system operated by U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services that allows businesses to determine the eligibility of their employees to work in the United States.​


Equal Employment Opportunity is the law and prohibits job discrimination based on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, age, equal pay, disability, or genetic information. The following “EEO is the Law” poster, prepared by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, summarizes these laws.


M.U.D. will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant. However, employees who have access to the compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants to individuals who do not otherwise have access to compensation information, unless the disclosure is (a) in response to a formal complaint or charge, (b) in furtherance of an investigation, proceeding, hearing, or action, including an investigation conducted by the employer, or (c) consistent with the District’s legal duty to furnish information.
