Flow rates have become a very important issue due to the increased use of center pivot irrigation systems and sub-surface drip irrigation within the High Plains Water District.
Field personnel can test wells using an ultrasonic flow meter to determine an accurate flow rate through an irrigation system. This accurate metering can assist irrigators with accurate flow measurement needed for system design and troubleshooting.
The High Plains Water District also has in-line flow meters that can be loaned out upon request. In addition, leak detectors are also available for municipal use.
