The Safe Drinking Water Act requires public water supply systems to prepare annual water quality reports for all of our customers to provide accurate, comprehensive information about our water supply. For more information about our water operations, call 402.554.6666 or visit www.mudomaha.com.
M.U.D. serves 202,820 customers an average of about 90 million gallons of water per day. As a customer of the Metropolitan Utilities District, you receive a high quality product that meets or surpasses every federal and state standard for safe drinking water.
Since we do not have the capability or resources to determine health risks of chemical compounds found in the water, we must rely on the EPA and Nebraska Health and Human Services to tell us what substances are a health risk—and if they are a health risk, what levels are safe for human consumption.
To ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) prescribes regulations to limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health risks may be obtained by calling the EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline, 800.426.4791, or visiting their website: http://water.epa.gov/drink/.
