Is your water meter
inside your home? Does
the meter reader need access to your home to read your meter?
If so, consider
having a water meter with extension installed so the meter can be
read from outside your home. This will insure
that the meter gets read every month whether you are home or not.
The cost of a water
meter with extension, including installation, is $137.60.
Since this also benefits Nebraska City Utilities, we will share
the cost with you, the customer. Your cost is $20
which can be added to your bill.
For further information, stop by our
office or call 873-3353 and ask for our service department, or

AND CROSS CONNECTION PROGRAM
Nebraska City Utilities backflow and cross connection program was
started in 1994 to insure that our drinking water is protected from
possible contamination. Our focus has been on identifying and
isolating possible sources of contamination and pollution. To do
this we have sent out surveys to all of our customers, both
residential and commercial, to help us locate possible problems.
our residential survey the things we are trying to identify are the
lawn sprinklers systems, boilers for home heat, swimming pools, and
improperly plumbed water softeners. In the commercial surveys we
are looking for the same things as in the residential surveys but we
are also looking for any equipment a business is using that uses water
in its operation and fire sprinkler systems.
one thing we always recommend is that each home owner should make sure
that their outside faucets are equipped with a hose bib vacuum
breaker. This device will protect your family as well as your
neighbors from any thing that can be sucked back into your hose, such
as insecticides and lawn fertilizers that are applied to your yard
using a siphoning device on the end of your hose. If you have
any questions about our program, please call the
utilities and ask for Al Harker or Cathy Meyer. If we are
unavailable please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon
