The District started in 1970.

Over the years, the District has grown to have more than 1,700 customers and is continuing to rise with ongoing development of Lincoln and surrounding areas.
Our office is located at 310 Fir Street, Bennet, Nebraska. The District is governed by a 7 Member Board of Directors. Directors are elected by the Membership and run for a 3 year term. Current Directors are listed below.
