Flow Meters

Tuesday
Nov082011

Flow meters provide a means to determine the flow rate and flow volume of irrigation systems. Many producers do not have flow meters, so they must rely on original well registration information. Over time, flow rates can change due to many factors including water table fluctuations and normal wear and tear. As a result, flow rates listed on original well registrations may not be accurate. Thus, it is beneficial to monitor flow rates throughout the irrigation season to ensure that the proper amount of irrigation water is being applied.

The Upper Loup NRD has an ultrasonic flow meter available to assist irrigators in irrigation management. This flowmeter attaches to the outside of the pipe to measure the flow allowing a non-intrusive way of measuring flow in a full-flowing pipe.

Upon request, an Upper Loup NRD technician will bring out the ultrasonic flow meter to measure the flow of the irrigation well to help cooperators better schedule their water application. This service is provided free to district producers. For more information, contact our office at 308-645-2250.

Sub-District 4 (Blaine and Brown Counties) Irrigators:  May 1, 2018 is the date for all high capacity wells associated with certified irrigated acres–whether actively watering or not–to be equipped with a flowmeter.
