Featured News & Research

Featured Partner: Metropolitan Utilities District

Metropolitan Utilities District (M.U.D.), headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, is a public utility and proud to be customer-owned since 1913. Our mission is to provide safe, reliable and cost-effective natural gas and water services to our community. M.U.D. is governed by a board of seven directors, elected by our customer-owners. We have more than 800 employees who live and work in the communities we serve.

Overall, the District serves more than 600,000 people in the metro area. 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 nation. We serve natural gas to more than 237,000 customers and provide drinking water to more than 222,000 customers.

M.U.D. continues to lay the groundwork for the future through investments in infrastructure, systems, and people to meet the growing needs of our community. Some major initiatives include the replacement of aging gas and water mains to improve system safety and reliability, improvements to our water treatment facilities and expansion of our liquefied natural gas plant which will substantially improve the capacity and reliability of the facility for years to come.

The District embraces the use of technology to execute all aspects of its mission. Information Technology (IT) professionals can be found developing, implementing and supporting back-office systems, customer-enabling solutions or mobile applications supporting the many field-focused employees working across the service area. Regardless of their specialty, IT employees see the impact of their work as we provide life essential services to the greater Omaha area.

In addition to its core mission, M.U.D. welcomes opportunities to contribute to a vibrant community. Our “M.U.D. on Tap!” mobile hydration station provides free tap water at community events. District employees volunteer at many charitable organizations in the area and M.U.D. is a key sponsor along with Omaha Public Power District of the annual “Heat the Streets” event raising funds for local utility assistance programs.
