Omaha defends its water quality
December 23, 2009
The Environmental Working Group
, an environmentalist charity and lobbying organization
, has issued a report that ranks Omaha's Metropolitan Utilities District (MUD) 94th among the nation's 100 largest water utilities
(Des Moines wasn't ranked
). MUD says that the analysis doesn't reflect the quality of treated water
distributed to its customers and overstates "contamination" by things like minerals that don't affect human health.
Patterson horizontal split-case pumps
are in service at MUD's newest plant, providing pressure to customers throughout the western portions of the water system.
