Omaha, Neb. – Water customers of Metropolitan Utilities District are invited to review the 2018 Consumer Confidence Report and learn more about the quality of their tap water. M.U.D. water meets or exceeds all federal and state standards for drinking water.
“We encourage our customers and the public to learn more about their drinking water, the sources as well as the treatment processes used to provide this life-essential service,” said M.U.D. President Mark Doyle. “Our new ‘On Tap’ campaign provides a great opportunity to raise awareness of the safe, reliable and high quality tap water the District provides to the community.”

Where your tap water comes from - Sources of M.U.D. water include the Missouri and Platte Rivers and the Dakota sandstone aquifer. Water is pumped from intakes and wells maintained by the District.
How your water is treated - Our three water treatment plants follow a four-step process, including softening, clarifying, filtering and disinfecting the water, to meet federal and state drinking water standards. We run more than 1,000 tests a day to ensure your tap water is safe to drink.
How your water is delivered - Our distribution system includes 3,000 miles of water mains and more than 27,000 hydrants for fire protection. To improve system reliability, M.U.D. began a program in 2008 to replace aging water mains. In 2019, the District plans to replace 10 miles of targeted water mains with a long-term goal of replacing up to 30 miles per year.
