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.

M.U.D. releases annual water quality report; continues to provide safe, high-quality water

Article date - 06-03-22

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.

To view the new Water Quality Report, visit mudomaha.com and look for the link on the home page. Hard copies of the report are available upon request by calling 402.554.6666.

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.
