The City of Mitchell owns and operates its own municipal electric, water and wastewater systems. The Board of Public Works operates the utilities systems. Their mission statement is to provide safe quality services at a fair price, while maintaining a customer friendly organization.

        The electric system maintains 2 substations with a combined capacity of 8500 kW. The current peak is 3520 kW. The City purchases wholesale power from Western Area Power Administration and the Municipal Energy Agency of Nebraska. The city operates its distribution system at 4,160 volts.

        The water system has 3 wells for normal usage and one emergency well. The average daily usage is 556,000 gallons. The peak daily consumption is 1,666,000 gallons. There is an elevated 200,000 gallon storage tank. The average city water pressure is 50 pounds per square inch.

        The wastewater system is a natural lagoon system. The system has 4 cells and meets our current requirements. Aeration has been added to cell one, with plans to install it on cell two in the near future.
