People Metropolitan Utilities District
History The Nebraska Legislature created the Metropolitan Water District in 1912. Six years later, state legislators authorized the City of Omaha, which had acquired the gas system by condemnation, to assign the responsibility for operation of the gas system to the Metropolitan Water District. The name was changed to the Metropolitan Utilities District. Today, they are the only metropolitan utilities district in the State of Nebraska. They also are fourth largest public natural gas utility in the U.S.
