Natural Gas Service
The Everly Municipal Utilities offers Natural Gas to residents within Everly.
Natural gas is odorless in its natural state. We add a disagreeable smell to alert you if any gas should escape. Gas leaks can occur in faulty appliances, loose connections, gas service lines inside or outside, or from gas mains. Gas leaks can be dangerous and should be reported to the utility immediately.
If you smell gas, even if your house is not equipped with gas appliances, take the following precautions: Call City Hall at 712-834-2600, if the odor is strong, and indoors, go outside and call from a neighbor's house, do not turn electrical switches on or off, do not light matches, smoke or create any source of combustion.
The Everly Municipal Utilities offers its customers a budget billing plan. This plan allows your average utility usage to be spread over 12 months. By averaging your usage it prevents high bills in the winter and low bills in the summer, giving you a more predictable monthly bill. Contact City Hall to sign up for budget billing.

The Everly Municipal water system began operations in 1921 with the first well and initial main lines and fire hydrants.
Since that time the system has undergone several expansions and upgrades. The water treatment plant and well in use today were put online in 1976. the latest upgrade occurred in 2001 and included a new 100 thousand-gallon elevated storage tank, looping of dead-end lines, additional fire hydrants, and a nitrate removal system.
Since the ion exchange, nitrate removal system went online in August of 2001 the nitrate level in the Everly drinking water has been, on average, 2.0 mg/l. The maximum level allowed by law is 10 mg/l. Additional treatment includes the addition of chlorine and fluoride. The utility also exercises valves and flushes fire hydrants on an annual schedule as part of the O&M plan to keep the system in good shape and the water quality far above mandated standards. In 2010, Everly Municipal Utilities began the engineering phase of replacing aging fire hydrants and looping the remaining dead-end lines in the system. As of July 2018, there are 3 fire hydrants left and a few dead-end lines to address.
