Nebraska’s Senator Ben Nelson will visit Nebraska City Friday afternoon to meet with farmers and city officials regarding flood issues, and tour the waste water treatment plant and the Omaha Public Power District power plant.

OPPD has spent $26 million so far fighting the Missouri River flood and may be seeking federal disaster aid to help minimize possible electric rate increases to cover its flood costs.

Senator Nelson will discuss this issue during his tour. OPPD provides electricity to 754,000 people in Southeast Nebraska including the Omaha metro region.
