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.

About Us

Mission and Vision

Metropolitan Utilities District (M.U.D.) is the only metropolitan utility district in the State of Nebraska. We are a public utility and proud to be customer-owned.

Mission: To provide safe, reliable, and cost-effective natural gas and water services to our community.

Vision: To maintain our commitment to serve our community, while striving to become one of the nation's top utilities.

Core Values: Safety, Reliability, Fiscal Responsibility and Organizational Excellence.

The District is governed by a board of seven directors, elected by our customer-owners. The board generally meets the first Wednesday of the month in the headquarters at 7350 World Communications Drive. We have more than 800 employees who live and work in the communities we serve.

As the fifth largest public gas utility in the United States, we provide a product and service at rates that are lower than area investor-owned utilities and among the lowest in the Midwest. We serve natural gas to 235,485 customers in Omaha, Bennington, Fort Calhoun, Springfield, Yutan and Bellevue.

We also provide safe drinking water to 220,625 customers in Omaha, Bellevue, Bennington, Carter Lake, La Vista, Ralston, Waterloo and the Papio-Missouri Natural Resources District (which supplies water to Fort Calhoun). Our water meets or exceeds all state and federal standards for drinking water.

The District owns and operates three water treatment facilities and an extensive water distribution system that is capable of supplying potable water in excess of 300 million gallons per day. We also maintain more than 27,000 hydrants for fire protection.

In addition to providing natural gas and water to customers in the metro area, we provide a cost-saving service to municipalities by serving as a billing agent for sewer use and trash fees.

Our History

The Nebraska Legislature created the Metropolitan Utilities District in the early 1900s as a political subdivision of the State to provide water and natural gas to the metropolitan Omaha area.

Our first water treatment plant was built near the Missouri River in 1889 by a private company. Omaha received water and gas service from private water and gas companies until the citizens of Omaha became dissatisfied with high costs, constant ownership changes and poor service, and voted to take control and ownership of their utilities. The Legislature created the Metropolitan Water District in 1913.

Five years later, state senators authorized the City of Omaha, which had acquired the gas system by condemnation, to assign the responsibility for operation of the gas system to the Metropolitan Water District. The name was changed to the Metropolitan Utilities District on March 3, 1921.

The service map is updated periodically. Some recently annexed/added areas may not be reflected in the map.
