Middle Republican NRD to begin flow meter readings Oct. 1

Wednesday, October 14, 2015

The Middle Republican Natural Resources District reminds producers that employees of the NRD will be entering property beginning Oct. 1, and continue through the end of December for the purpose of recording the readings of flow meters.   This will include all irrigation wells you may have on your property.

Flow meters within the NRD district are on a maintenance schedule.  All irrigation meters in Red Willow County will be serviced at the time of reading.  Other meters throughout the district will be serviced, as needed, at the time of reading.

It may be necessary to enter some properties more than once in the event an additional reading may be needed.  Producers are reminded that if they continue to run their irrigation system after the flow meter has been read it is your responsibility to notify the NRD office with the current reading.

Water Programs staff will calculate the water pumped for the past water year and annual water reports will be issued beginning February 2016. 

Contact NRD Water Programs staff at 308-367-4281 if you have any questions or concerns.
