Omaha, Neb. -- Metropolitan Utilities District (M.U.D.) and the City of Plattsmouth today entered a memorandum of understanding to explore plans for a potential water service connection between M.U.D.’s system and the City of Plattsmouth’s distribution system.
As part of the agreement, M.U.D., and Plattsmouth with their consulting engineer, will coordinate as needed during the design process.
Plattsmouth’s water treatment facility was impaired during the historic 2019 flooding. Plattsmouth has been working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on flood recovery projects and securing a suitable source of drinking water is one of those key recovery projects.
