Measurement Order

Anyone irrigating over 5 acres either from a single water right or in combination with other water rights from a shared diversion point (water rights combined equal over 5 acres), will be required to have in place a measuring and controlling device by irrigation season 2021. It is highly recommended that these devices are in place at the end of irrigation season 2020.
