As part of the Wahoo Source Water Protection Project, the City of Wahoo Department of Utilities (DOU) is seeking property owners that own abandoned wells and are willing to allow the city to assist with decommissioning to help protect the city’s drinking water supply. Those who are interested are encouraged to contact the DOU by April 30, 2022. This action is part of the DOU’s effort to establish a Wellhead Protection (WHP) Plan to guide the city on how to best protect drinking water for the long term. The intent of the WHP Plan is to fully understand the underground source of water, identify potential contaminants, and establish contaminant management strategies.
The DOU, with support from the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy (NDEE) and Lower Platte North Natural Resources District, is currently offering 100% of the cost of most well closures within a two-mile area around the WHP area, which illustrates the area of land above the aquifer where the city draws its drinking water (featured in the map below).
Property owners who are interested in participating in the 100% cost share program for well decommissioning can contact the Wahoo DOU at (402) 443 – 3222.

The City of Wahoo Utilities will be moving from manual meter reading to Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) for residential electricity, water, and gas utilities.
- AMI includes technologies such as “smart meters” that accurately and securely enable two-way information between customers and the utilities while providing real-time consumption data.
- By switching to AMI, Wahoo Utilities will gather timely utility data to better understand community usage patterns and establish a utility of the future.
- The transition from manual meter reading to AMI is part of normal Wahoo Utilities operations and will have no direct cost to customers.
Upgrading from manual meter reading to AMI will improve utility management, allowing customers and Wahoo Utilities to make better informed decisions.
|BENEFITS TO CUSTOMERS||BENEFITS TO WAHOO UTILITIES|
|Faster response to outages and water meter leaks||Timely access to more utility data|
|More effiicient billing resolutions||Lower operational costs and improved customer satisfaction|
|Saving money through energy efficient initiatives||Ability to remotely disconnect utilities|
Wahoo Utilities will begin a four-year rollout plan in 2021 to replace or retrofit residential utility meters.
- All homes within Wahoo city limits will have their electricity, water, and gas meters updated to AMI.
- City representatives will coordinate with homeowners prior to updating water and gas meters within homes.
- The installation process will be rolled out by billing cycle (about one-fourth of the community each phase).
For more information about the AMI process, click here for a fact sheet. More information will be available as implementation gets closer.
