Metropolitan Utilities District released its annual consumer confidence report on water quality, confirming that the metro Omaha area’s water continues to meet or exceed all state and federal standards for drinking water.
“Although we are required to publish this report every year, it provides an opportunity to reassure our customers that we continue to supply high-quality tap water,” said M.U.D. President Mark Doyle. “We remain diligent in providing life-essential services to the community, including safe and reliable water to meet the needs of our customers,” Doyle said.
M.U.D.’s water is regulated by the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). M.U.D. uses multiple barriers of protection from pathogens including disinfection and filtration that target viruses and other contaminants. M.U.D.’s dedicated team of water quality experts continually monitor and test the water system. Water samples are checked routinely over 1,000 times a day to ensure a safe supply.
Customers who have additional questions about their drinking water may call the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 800.426.4791 or visit this link.
