Water Emergency Thank You
On September 3, the City of Plattsmouth terminated the Water Emergency that began on March 20, 2019. City Administrator Erv Portis announced that the water treatment plant passed the final tests and inspections and began producing water.
While water quality is good, various components of the plant are operating without redundancy. One of the five wells is currently operational. Two of four pumps are turning. It may be several months before a backup generator can be installed.
"The City of Plattsmouth thanks Cass County Rural Water District #1, its Board of Directors, and the General Manager for being there when we needed you. Most important, Plattsmouth thanks its users and customers for their patience during this very difficult time."
When the water emergency was at its worst:
City workers and volunteers pitched in. THANK YOU!

Welcome to Plattsmouth!
Founded in 1854, we are one of Nebraska’s oldest cities. Plattsmouth is rich in history and culture. Situated at the confluence of the Missouri and Platte rivers, Plattsmouth has a place in the discovery of the west. The Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery passed the mouth of the Platte River, just north of what is now Main Street Plattsmouth, on July 21, 1804. Our City seal reads “Honor the Past, Plan for the Future.”
Plattsmouth proudly offers a full range of excellent city services, including police; volunteer fire and rescue; public works which includes water, sewer, streets, parks, and grounds/facilities maintenance. So that we are prepared for the future, we recently expanded the fire and rescue department with a $1.7 million expansion that includes meeting rooms, a kitchen, and sleeper rooms. Our new $5.7 million Senior and Community Center serves more than 1,000 local area citizens who visit more than 12,000 times per week. Twin Rivers Water Park, Rhylander Park, Garfield Park, Memorial Park, and all other parks/recreation facilities and our excellent library add services and lifestyle qualities so that Plattsmouth’s citizens and our visitors have superior places to live, work, and play. In 2011, Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman presented the Showcase Community Award to Plattsmouth for outstanding efforts in the areas of economic development and community revitalization.
We encourage you to use this website to learn about Plattsmouth and to communicate with us.
